Atlanta Vocal Project was formed in 2005, as the Atlanta Metro Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a Georgia 501(C)(3) Corporation. We are a male chorus that sings four part a cappella harmony, mainly in the style of the close harmony sung by Barbershop Quartets. Comprised of men ranging in ages from high school to retirees and coming from all walks of life, we welcome those who have a love of singing and who take pride in performing.
The Chapter has adopted an enthusiastic program that includes music education, participation in Society competitions, youth outreach, and service to community. We are proud to have been recognized as one of the 10 highest-scoring chapters in the Barbershop Harmony Society's Chapter Achievement program. Along with an internal focus on a healthy chapter life, we are also focused on making a positive impact within our community and partaking in the many benefits the Society has to offer.
We provide a meaningful music program. We keep our repertoire fresh by making sure we sing through each current song at least once or twice within the month. That way, we are not always working on the same two or three songs all the time. We have music team leadership that makes sure we are all working toward the same goal of musical excellence.
The impact of our small group coaching sessions is a key element of our success. The small group and even one-on-one vocal lessons by our director and music team help each member become more comfortable in singing and improve the ensemble sound. Also, each year we try to have a multi-chapter meeting where all the Atlanta area chapters can meet and sing together. We have started an annual barbecue in May for all Atlanta area barbershoppers (BHS, SAI, and HI).
Over the years, Atlanta Vocal Project has entertained appreciative audiences at many Atlanta area venues. We have been asked to sing for state and national dignitaries at the Governor's Mansion many times. Our Georgia audiences have included Gainesville, Augusta, Calhoun, Newnan, Sandy Springs, Marietta, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, and many places in between.
The Chorus has also performed across the nation in Indianapolis, Denver, Nashville, Anaheim, Kansas City, Portland, and Las Vegas. In July 2013, we competed in the Society convention in Toronto, Ontario.
Under the direction of Clay Hine, the future of Atlanta Vocal Project is bright, continuing the Chapter's proud tradition of pursuit of musical excellence and continuous improvement, all while keeping the Society's spirit of Brotherhood, Family, and Harmony alive and thriving!
