We enjoy singing great songs in four-part harmony. Our repertoire ranges from traditional barbershop to pop. Bing, Beatles, Beach Boys, Jersey Boys, shanties, show tunes, doo wop – we’ll sing anything if it has a strong melody and beautiful harmonies!
The chorus and associated quartets perform regularly around Christchurch – with annual mid-year and Christmas shows, ANZAC Day performances and various public and private events.
Since early 2018, The Plainsmen Chorus has been in growth mode and we are keen to give more people the opportunity to join in the fun and congeniality of making unaccompanied song under our new musical director, Gavin Hurley. If you are considering joining you are welcome to attend a rehearsal. We offer an opportunity to come and sing with the chorus, experience the joy of a capella close harmony singing and meet a wide range of supportive men who are united in harmony. Perhaps you have already had some singing experience, perhaps not. It doesn’t matter, because if you are keen to explore further you will be given some singing coaching. We meet most Mondays at The Methodist Church Hall, 3 Brake Street Upper Riccarton, at 7:15pm.
