In early December, 1980, five men who had previous barbershop experience gathered at the Pinecrest Inn and began what was to become the Golf Capital Chorus, a group dedicated to four part harmony singing for the pure joy of it. In 1981 they agreed to organize a local barbershop chapter of (SPEBSQSA) now, Barbershop Harmony Society International. On August 17, 1981 they received their official chapter charter. Every year since then we have performed an annual show designed to appeal to all residents of the Sandhill’s. The proceeds from these shows and other events we perform at, benefit local charities. The Chorus has contributed a total of $105,000 to the Sandhill’s Children’s Center and has donated more than $370,000 to other area family oriented charities since its founding.
As the Chorus has grown, it has become more widely recognized. We have performed at the Civic Center in Raleigh, in Fayetteville, and at many other locations in central North Carolina. The Chorus also performed two shows in Hamlet as a benefit for the Roberdel School for Exceptional Children.
The Chorus presently has about 45 members. The Chorus also has quartets available to entertain your group and to help us raise money for our charities. Click here for more information on getting a quartet to sing for YOU!!!!!
The vision of the Golf Capital Chorus is to be an ever-growing, diverse fraternity of barbershop style singers, working to preserve the barbershop singing art through high quality chorus and quartet singing.
The mission of the Golf Capital Chorus is to engage in and promote barbershop style singing, providing musical enrichment and fellowship for our members, quality entertainment for our audiences, and significant contributions to our various charities.
Membership is open to any male who has some voice capability, an “ear” for music, likes to sing and have fun.
If you are interested, come to one of our practice sessions, held every Monday evening from 7pm to 9pm at the Community Presbyterian Church on 125 Everett Road in Pinehurst. Contact Marty Matula at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at (910) 673-3464 for more information.
