Gentlemen of the Black River Chorus!


I just wanted to send out a quick note to say a BIG THANKS to all of you who took part in the Black River chorus this past Saturday night!  What a great night (and weekend) it was. Seeing so many members, friends and past members there was something special!! Lots of great acts and performances is something HR always does so well. Congrats to the organizers and to everyone who helped out to make this show and evening spectacular! 

I was very excited to see how many guys we ended up with on the risers (grass and stage [flatbed]) Even thought there were limited rehearsals (2) you guys were amazing!  Thanks again for allowing me to stand in front of you all…it was a real pleasure!  I also would like to extend thanks to Jordan Travis who took one of the rehearsals  while I was at a wedding…we missed you up there Jordan!  And to Chris Arnold (former HR member) for donating the learning tracks for When I Lift Up My head!! Two great guys helping out when needed!!  Thanks Guys!!!  

I can’t wait for the 50th anniversary and how big the Black River Chorus will be by then!  Have a great summer everyone and THANKS AGAIN!! 

In Harmony

Black River Chorus

Hello everyone from our beloved Harmony Ranch!

As a “Harmony Ranch Brat” I have seen this place grow and grow and feel VERY privileged to have been here since it’s inception in 1973!!  (I was 2 years old! J)

I have also seen many, many people come and go over the years, and many different events created by very creative people. One thing that has been pretty consistent during the life of Harmony Ranch is the Black River Chorus! And this year (our 40th) will be no different.

I have been asked to Direct this years chorus during our big 40th anniversary weekend of Aug 3-4-5, and felt it was not only an opportunity to good to pass up!  But an honor and privilege to do so in front of so many great men! I thank the committee for this opportunity!

Now on to the fun stuff!  Right now I’m not exactly sure, at this time, the logistics of the event and how many songs we’ll be singing, but with so many great singers and choruses represented at HR, I think we can come up with some great fun songs to mark this special occasion!  There will be emails sent out in the coming weeks in regards to the songs, music and possible learning tracks. How to access them and where to find them will also be sent out.

I know there are a few of you out there who have done this job before, and some who have been the “Music ordering” guy(s) , so if anyone out there could let me know what songs we “own” the rights for, and or what learning tracks we may have, that would help a great deal! I will be asking for some help in regards to logistics, music distribution and other stuff I’m sure, so if you are interested, please let me know!  Let’s make this something to remember!  You can reach me at the email below.

I really hope we can get this chorus to be the biggest Black River Chorus ever, and really make this the best anniversary gift to all involved!  After all, this place was built on harmony and friendship…and what better way to show that,  through the barbershop style and RINGING THOSE CHORDS!!

Thanks everyone in advance for your support. This is going to be FUN!!!!

In Harmony!,
