Whether you can't read
a note and only sing by
ear or you're working
on a master's degree
in opera performance,
we want you!

Come sing with us!
Sounds of Indiana is a premier men's chorus located near Indiana University in Bloomington. We are a group of men dedicated to preserving and singing a style of music known as barbershop harmony and we are actively seeking new members. We would like quality singers who want to enjoy the fun, fellowship, and the good feelings generated by close harmony singing. Experience in singing and/or reading music is helpful, but by no means required.
Rehearsals are usually held every Wednesday evening beginning at 7:00 pm in the Music classroom at Templeton Elementary School. Enter from Brenda Ave. Door #6, immediately turn right, turn right again to go down the stairs, and proceed down the hallway to room L17 (on the left).
(We occasionally meet in other locations when Templeton is unavailable due to special events or maintenance issues with the building. If you have any concern about finding us on a particular week, please email our address below to confirm!)
Auditioning is a painless two step process — first a "no-preparation required" pre-screening is performed that evaluates your basic vocal range, quality, and accuracy. The second step is done 3–4 weeks later. We ask you to learn a simple song and demonstrate your proficiency of tonality, listening, and musicality. Our audition is not a one-time opportunity. We want you to succeed and we will provide you with all of the help that we can to see that you do so!
We welcome anyone who wants to contribute to Sounds of Indiana's success, and singing is not required. Volunteers are needed in all facets of show preparation, production, and related activities.
