The "Tonecutters" chorus was originally established in the 1970s as the Bloomington, IN, chapter of the national barbershop society.
In 2008, the Bloomington chapter was reformed as Sounds of Indiana, with a mostly-new membership under the musical direction of Kurt Vogel.
Since then, SoI is proud to list the largest number of chorus appearances at Cardinal District's semiannual convention.

In early 2020, SoI was saddened by the passing of Chuck Kraus, founding member of the Tonecutters, at age 86. In early 2021, former long-time member Dick Hughes passed at age 90.
