At Hunter Women of Note Chorus, we love to sing and entertain in a supportive, fun atmosphere. An important part of that is the performance art of barbershop singing - glittering costumes and beautiful four-part harmony music.

At our recent show "Four Parts, One Heart" performed at The Grainery, we hosted the Novatones, an all male chorus and Coastal a Cappella, another all female chorus. There were also performances by 3 other quartets drawn from those groups.


My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the show. We loved the barbershop groups and the women’s choir was truly professional, entertaining us with such a range of voices and their animation! It’s so good to see performers enjoying their presentation. The male choir took my breath away, especially in “Do You Hear the People Sing? "  The combination of comedy and serious songs throughout the program kept us completely involved over the whole time.  Jack and Vi
