About Charlotte A Cappella Show Chorus

We currently have over 30 singers of all ages, all walks of life, from all parts of the Charlotte, North Carolina area.  The Queen Charlotte Chorus was chartered on July 1, 1965 and we changed our name to the Charlotte A Cappella Show Chorus on May 1, 2013.  For more on the history of the chorus, go to the Chorus History page.


CASC Show 9-2013The main purpose of Charlotte A Cappella Show Chorus is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.  

 

Education

In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.


Competition

In the spring of every year, Charlotte A Cappella Show Chorus participates in our Region's chorus competition. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a different city each year.

 

Quartets

Most choruses have some members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Charlotte A Cappella Show Chorus currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
