2000 Spring Show at ISU Tilson Hall

About us
The Banks of the Wabash Chorus is a men's Barbershop Chorus. We enjoy singing in that special form of a-cappella music called "Barbershop".
We are the Terre Haute chapter of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA). We are part of the Cardinal District, which includes all of Indiana and Kentucky. For more information about history of our chorus, click here


What is Barbershop?
Technically speaking, Barbershop harmony is a style of unaccompanied singing with three voices harmonizing to the melody. The lead usually sings the melody, with the tenor harmonizing above the lead. The bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes and the baritone provides in-between notes, either above or below the lead to make chords (specifically, dominant-type or "Barbershop" sevenths) that give Barbershop its distinctive, "full" sound.

out or entertain, either our full Chorus of some 50 men, or with a Quartet.
