From Two To One
BIG NEWS: As of June 18, 2019, The Denver MountainAires and the Colorado Chord Company, two Denver area Choruses, merged into the Denver Mountainaires Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society and will perform as the Colorado Chord Company. This merger has introduced new energy into all the chorus members and watch for some great shows to come as a result! This new Chorus plans to compete in Regional events going forward.
Chapter membership is 50 or so men, with several registered quartets. We pride ourselves upon our community involvement — singing to our youth and senior citizens alike. A typical chapter meeting will include quartetting, chorus work, and more fun than you can imagine. Many members continue singing after rehearsal in the worldwide tradition of 'Afterglow'.
Denver MountainAires History
Chartered Sept.18, 1975, the Denver MountainAires chapter was formed as an alternative to rehearsals focused on rigorous contest preparation. About twenty men had a vision of a chapter without extensive time spent on risers, with more emphasis placed upon quartet activities, and a more relaxed, fun meeting format. The chapter focus has always been to sing with quality for our appreciative audiences.
In the early 1990’s, the Chord Weavers quartet started singing at area junior high and high schools. It has slowly grown over the years into a strong youth outreach program, touching the lives of boys and girls alike. In the last few years, the Denver Mile High chapter and the Sweet Adelines have joined us in our efforts to educate, excite, and inspire our youth to sing barbershop. We hold an annual High School Quartet Contest and Summer Harmony Camp for both boys and girls, and more.
Colorado Chord Company History
CCC was chartered in 2013, so was a fairly new chorus. They met in Northglenn and did all the usual chorus activities of rehearsals and going out to retirement communities for singouts, as well as occasionally competing in the annual Rocky Mountain District competitions
