Keene Cheshiremen Chorus: Reunited and It Feels So Good!
The Keene Cheshiremen Chorus has announced, “We are back!” Live and in-person singing is happening, now - back, inside, in their usual location - indoors at Hannah Grimes Center! (25 Roxbury Street)
The men of the chorus have a new appreciation for the opportunity to sing together and create harmony again. It is no longer taken for granted, and it is welcomed and enjoyed more than ever. They invite any and all men of good character to join them in celebration of this opportunity to sing together again.
The Cheshiremen Chorus is the Keene chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society – an organization of a cappella men’s barbershop chorus and quartet singers worldwide. The Cheshiremen Chorus has been an integral and popular cultural experience in choral singing in the Monadnock region for over 69 years. They are now meeting weekly on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., back at their regular home: Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship, at 25 Roxbury Street, remaining safe and comfortable. Men of all ages are always welcome and encouraged to turn their morning-shower solos into meaningful harmony by giving it a try in an organized, choral setting. No auditioning or experience in harmonizing is necessary.
The Cheshiremen are working on these songs again, preparing for a c-o-o-l show theme: Breaking Up Is Hard to Do, California Dreaming, Daydream, Hooked On a Feeling, In My Room, King of the Road, Sh-Boom, Sweet Caroline, The Longest Time, When I'm 64, and Yesterday. They are hoping to hold a fall show, if all goes well. They welcome everyone to view some performances of these songs on YouTube – just add the word “barbershop harmony” to any title.
The Cheshiremen are reaching out to all music organizations, schools, and groups, too. They are working to make the 2021 Cheshiremen Chorus bigger and better than ever. Men, any age, who might love to sing, are welcome any Tuesday night to try their voice with this 4-part harmony! We supply music, learning tracks, improvement opportunities and the encouragement!
