Chorus of the Genesee
The Chorus of the Genesee is a part of the Rochester Chapter of SPEBSQSA, Inc, the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America. We sing four part a cappella music, specializing in an original American art form called barbershop harmony. Our membership comes from Rochester and many surrounding communities. Few of us are professional musicians, but we all love to sing. We meet Tuesday nights at 7:00 in Harmony House.
In addition to our annual show in the Spring, we provide entertainment at music festivals, private functions, area nursing homes, senior centers, and museums. We are a championship chorus that has represented Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania in international competition more than twenty-five times.
