Our 2017 holiday party was bittersweet as we commemorated Bill Colosimo’s retirement after 25 years as the director of the Singing Capital Chorus. The evening was filled with singing and warm remembrances, and included many friends and family members of the chorus. Sheryl Berlin also announced that she would be stepping down from her Assistant Director role to allow her to spend more time sharing her love of barbershop with young people.
We presented “A Cappella Magic”, our 71st Harvest of Harmony on Nov. 4th to an enthusiastic audience at the Greenberg Auditorium. The show included chapter quartets Foggy Bottom Four and Legacy (featuring Fred Peters, celebrating his 100th birthday!), guest quartet Capital City Close Harmony Club, and our featured guest quartets Da Capo and Knock Out.

If, on a Monday evening, you drop into the community room of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church located at 36th and Everett Streets, NW, you will hear ringing chords of barbershop harmony as the Singing Capital Chorus (SCC) grows and polishes its broadly diverse repertoire.
