Under the direction of Ian Kelly, the Boise Chordsmen competed in the Evergreen District Barbershop Chorus contest on October 27th, coming in second place, our highest ranking ever. The Chordsmen also scored an average score of 80.5, another all time high for the chorus.
With the score came an invitiation to sing on the International Barbershop Chorus Contest as Mic Testers in July of 2019. There is a slight possibility the Chordsmen will receive an invitation to compete at that contest.
The Evergreen District is composed of Barbershop Chapters from Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Western Montana, North and Western Idaho, and the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta Canada.
The chorus from Bellevue Washington came in first place. There were a total of seventeen choruses performing.
Here is the Boise Chordsmen's competition set.
