The Coles County Chorus
Who are we?
The Coles County Barbershop Chorus is one of the Premier a’capella mens harmony organizations in Illinois. Creating wonderful harmonies every Tuesday evening, this group of dedicated men constantly strive to improve our vocal abilities from both a technical and artistic perspective. We believe that music has the power to change lives and we are excited to have the chance to share our love of the Barbershop Style of harmony with diverse audiences.
One of the foundation tenets of our organization is the desire to give back to the communities in which we live. We do that by supporting various local charities and the vocal music programs of area High Schools. We, annually, donate thousands of dollars in support of those who are, themselves, working to make this a better world – teachers, community servants and many others.
We are always seeking ‘men of good character’ to join us in our never-ending quest to create musical art. There are no professional musicians in our group, not that you can’t join us if you’re a pro 🙂 We are, simply, a group of amateur singers and musicians, from an incredibly diverse background, who love to sing. If you love music the way we do and you would like to come and see what we are all about; if you want to be a part of something wonderful, something life-changing, come check us out!
We meet every Tuesday evening at 7:00pm. Our meeting place is the First Presbyterian Church in Mattoon, Illinois located at 10 Charleston Avenue.
It’s GREAT to be a Coles County Barbershopper!|
