About Sarasota Chorus of the Keys

Sarasota Chorus of the Keys is a membership organization of singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 30 singers of all walks of life, and all parts of the Sarasota area.

 

Performance

The main purpose of Sarasota Chorus of the Keys is to get out and sing for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions. We also perform Singing Telegrams around Valentines Day and Mother's Day. 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 acapella 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 and fall of every year, Sarasota Chorus of the Keys participates in the Sunshine District 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 city selected each year. 

Quartets

Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Sarasota Chorus of the Keys 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.
