Mission: We believe in singing to bring people together and to serve our community - that music sung well makes people feel better, enriching the lives of both singers and listeners. Note: As of 1 Jan 2019, Chordsmen membership is open all-male, female, youth etc.
As much a part of American culture as Old Glory and Mom’s apple pie, barbershop quartet singing is an original American art form. It thrives today through the efforts of an organization formed in 1938, for the preservation and encouragement of barbershop quartet singing in America. Today, this organization, known as the Barbershop Harmony Society is the world’s largest all-male singing organization.
The Chordsmen, a chapter of this society, was chartered in 1955. We are celebrating our 63d season of bringing music, laughter, and entertainment in four-part “Barbershop” harmony to South Texas.
The chorus members represent just about every occupation and profession, and range in age from the “teens” to the “seniors.” We are united in our desire to sing four-part harmony and to sing it well.
