About River Magic Chorus

River Magic Chorus is an organization of women who love to sing barbershop harmony.  We meet every Tuesday evening to rehearse, perform, socialize, and have fun. The chorus is made up of more than 40 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of the Tri-State area, including Huntington, Hurricane, and Charleston in West Virginia; Proctorville, South Point, and Ironton in Ohio; and Ashland and Flatwoods in Kentucky.



IMG 2759We love to sing for our community!  We

entertain at many community, civic and holiday events, at our annual show each fall, and we also offer Singing Valentines each year. 


River Magic Chorus is ready to sing at your next function.  If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event,

please check out our Hire Us section.



In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of barbershop harmony. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals; it's a very important component of the chorus experience. Several times a year, we will receive coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.


In the spring of every year, the River Magic Chorus participates in the Harmony Heartland Region 4 chorus competition in Covington, KY.   Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our six-state 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 will travel to the annual Sweet Adelines International Competition, where choruses and quartets from all over the world compete against each other. In October of 2018, International competition will be held in St. Louis, MO. Click here to learn more.



Most choruses have a number of members who form their own quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. River Magic 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 and to find contact information for each one.  Our quartets entertain all over the area, and they would love to sing for you!
