"Asheville’s Land of the Sky Chorus Places 6th in Recent Competition"

ASHEVILLE, NC, Mar. 24, 2008. The Land of the Sky Barbershop Chorus placed 6th out of 22 choruses at the recent convention and competition held by the Dixie District of the Barbershop Harmony Society in Greenville, SC. This is the second highest the chorus has placed in competition in its 60 year history.

The chorus had 41 men on stage under the direction of Mr. Chuck Greene, of Fletcher, and competed against strong choruses from Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, Charlotte, and a number of other cities from across the southeast. The Land of the Sky Chorus is part of the Asheville Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS), and is made up of men from Buncombe, and the surrounding counties.

The Chapter’s BHS registered quartet, “TBA”, also competed in the quartet section of the competition and scored high enough in the preliminary session to gain the coveted “mike tester” spot for the quartet finals. “TBA” members are James Monday of Waynesville, Mike Richard of Fairview, Ralph Johnson of Asheville, and Kevin Kehres of Fletcher.

The Chorus, and its various quartets, performs in a number of venues throughout WNC. Annual activities include the delivery of “Singing Valentines” each Feb., and an Annual Show, which in 2008 will be performed in Hendersonville, Waynesville, and at the Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville on Dec. 6. Last year the Show was titled “Kicked Off Broadway”.

The Chorus is open to all men who like to sing. Rehearsals are open to anyone who wants to come and listen, and auditions are held every week for those men who want to give this wonderful original American art form a try. The weekly meeting and rehearsals are held at 7:30 PM at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 51 Wilburn Place, W. Asheville.
