The Seattle SeaChordsmen Barbershop Chorus celebrated 70 years of music at their annual concert, held at the Shorewood Performing Arts Center on June 29, 2019 with two performances.

The Four Tune Seekers sang
C'mon Get Happy

The SeaChordsmen started life around 1940 with 18 men from the Seattle Star newspaper and KIRO radio. Nine years later they received their official charter.

From the beginning they sang as a chorus, but also formed many quartets from within the group. That pattern has continued to today.

The Sound Harmony Chorus were guest artists

They were joined this year by guest quartets and the Sound Harmony Chorus, a chapter of the Sweet Adelines, who share a director with the SeaChordsmen.

They've always been a performing group at events around Puget Sound. They compete in district, state, and national competitions.

The chorus rehearses every Tuesday at the Queen Anne Baptist Church, 2011 1st Ave N, Seattle 98109 and welcomes visitors. On July 16, 2019 they will have a special Guest Night with a special rehearsal program to welcome guests and introduce them to barbershop harmony.
