Our History

The Gold Rush Chorus was founded in 1983 to bring the joy of Barbershop singing to the foothills of California. As a testament as to just how much fun we have, the GRC has a number of active members today who were charter members 30 years ago!

Over those 30 years, the Gold Rush Chorus has held true to its core values:

  • Promote fellowship and friendship among men of good will
  • Celebrate harmony in the barbershop style
  • Provide service to others through our music

We're proud of our town and that motivates us to do whatever we can to make it better. The Gold Rush Chorus partipates in a number of community events throughout the year, including the annual Christmas tree lighting

Our "Thing?"

What we do is sing. We rehearse on Tuesday nights to practise and polish our craft. But we live to perform. At our Spring and Fall shows, at local civic and private events. Where doesn't matter so much, getting out there and sharing our love for music is what we do!

Stop in and see us!

We rehearse every Tuesday Evening, from 7PM until about 9:15. We're at the First Christian Church, 2687 Andler Rd, Placerville, CA 95667. It's off Cold Springs Road, about 1/2 mile up the hill from the DMV. Visitors are always welcome - we love singing for people!

Everyone's welcome, and who knows? You might just find a hobby you'll cherish for the rest of your life!
