Our Mission: As a Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society we are inclusive to all who wish to sing a cappella four-part harmony. We strive for excellence in our musical performance, and in doing so, we inspire, educate and entertain our community.
The Sandblaster Chorus was chartered in 1978 as the Coachella Valley Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Over the years, the Chorus has grown both its membership and repertoire. The Sandblasters appear in public performances during the Coachella Valley Winter Season, including our Annual Show every March.
With nearly 40 active members, the Sandblaster Chorus sings barbershop-style, four-part a cappella close harmony under the direction of Betsy Flanagan. The Chorus rehearses year-round on Tuesdays and is the Coachella Valley’s premier practitioner of the barbershop style. Whether you’re a Tenor, Lead, Baritone or Bass, your interest in a cappella singing will be your ticket to musical enjoyment. If you love to sing and would like to experience barbershop harmony and the fellowship of other male singers, please drop in any Tuesday night and visit us.
Rehearsals start at 6:30 on Tuesday and conclude by 9 p.m. Many Chorus members then adjourn for pizza and more singing at our weekly Afterglow. Barbershop singing is fun, rewarding and satisfying. Come join us for an evening of song.
