About Voices of California

Voices of California (VoCal) was founded in 2010. While based in Sacramento, the membership of VoCal is comprised of men from Northern California and areas of Nevada. Our first priority is to first class entertainment! We strive to be good stewards in our community by performance, and support of our local music performance groups, and a focus on youth outreach in our schools and colleges.

 

Vocal found instant local success in being name Northeast Division Champions at our first contest 11 weeks after our founding. VoCal has held that championship for the past seven years! VoCal! was also the first Sacramento area representivative to the International Barbershop Harmony Contest in 2013 in over 65 years of babershop in our area. We returned to the International Contest Stage in 2014 and are focused on a return in 2017

The main purpose of Voices of California is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We also perform Singing Telegrams around Valentines Day. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.


Education

In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.

CompetitionIn the spring of every year, Voices of California participates in the Northeast Division of the Far Western District chorus competition in various cities. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our Division to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the District competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the Summer in a city selected each year.

Quartets

Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Voices of California currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
