WEST SOUND CHORUS UNVEILS “UNDERCOVER ELF!” FOR CHRISTMAS 2019
West Sound Chorus presents another seasonal musical romp on December 14th at North Kitsap (High School) Community Auditorium. With classic Christmas carols and a few modern holiday tunes, all in a cappella harmony, the show is wrapped in a story that will captivate all audiences. The “Come Sing With Us” community chorus again graces our stage, along with quartets and ensembles from West Sound Chorus, your local Barbershop Harmony Society chapter!
OUR STORY: “UNDERCOVER ELF!”
Something strange is afoot, and there’s nothing normal about it. “He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake.” Did you ever consider just how creepy that is? And HOW does he know? Well, let me tell ya! Corporate espionage, that’s how!! But if you want to know the details, you’ll have to come see for yourself – in person! Can’t risk this document falling into the wrong hands. Let’s just say that not all elves are toymakers and leave it at that for now, shall we?
Actually, it is a heart-warming story, but we throw in some fun and lots of 4-part harmony.
COME SING WITH US CHORUS
Our stage overflows with singers who join us for a couple of months to participate in the fun and joy of singing Christmas and holiday music, all a cappella. Over 60 men and women dedicate themselves to bringing joy to you on December 14th. Back by popular demand, we will again be singing, Pinkzebra’s 2006 hit, “Remembering Decembers.” New for us to sing, but familiar to all, we’ll be bringing you “Jingle Bell Rock”, the iconic tune originally from 1957. Plus much, much more.
WEST SOUND CHORUS
We'll be singing traditional favorites and modern popular tunes. Many, many contemporary and sacred songs are part of our Christmas musical revue. Our show will feature various quartets and ensembles from the chapter, intertwined with chorus songs, skit play-acting, multimedia, and capped by our signature Christmas show piece, “ 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
We are your local award-winning Barbershop style and a cappella chorus. We were chartered in 1978 as the Kitsap County Chapter of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA), now called Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS). Last year we re-branded ourselves by changing our name from Kitsap Chordsmen to West Sound Chorus. Our (non-profit 501(c)3) charter and mission continues to be to support music education in the community, especially high school and junior high.
This re-branding reflects our new sound, a more vibrant and expressive version of the Barbershop Style. We have won the BHS Western Washington Divisional Contest several times in recent years, qualifying and placing high at the northwest 5-state Evergreen District Contest. Many of our quartets have also qualified and placed high in these contests. If you have not seen us in a couple of years, you will be surprised!
