About the Altoona Chorus

The Altoona Chorus is an organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. They currently have over 32 singers of all ages, from all walks of life, and from all parts of the central Pennyslvania area. 

 

Education

The main purpose of the Altoona Chorus is to teach their members how to sing well, and they do that using 4 - part a cappella harmony.  Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, they will have coaching sessions in the art of barbershop, where they learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.

  

Performance

They love to get out and sing for their community. The Altoona Chorus sings at annual shows, a number of community events, and at an annual competition. They also perform at area nursing homes, hospitals and senior communities. The Altoona Chorus is available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out their Hire Us section.

 

Competition
