The Puget Sounders are an a cappella men's vocal group that sings popular songs from the 20th Century - songs many of us grew up singing. Most of our songs are tunes that were popular from the 1930s to the 1960s, with a few from more recent decades thrown in.
We are proud to have entertained local organizations and sung for community events in the South Puget Sound area since 1961. We sing at local fairs and festivals, for community service and social organizations and for private gatherings. Last year we sang the National Anthem at the State Capitol rotunda and we made appearances at the Southwest Washington Fair, Harbor Days on the Olympia waterfront and the Olympia Farmers Market.
The chorus is composed of male singers who are members of the Olympia and Centralia chapters of the international Barbershop Harmony Society. You think you know what barbershop singing sounds like? Wait until you've heard the Puget Sounders!
The chorus is always looking for new members. Any man of any age who enjoys singing or humming a tune is welcome to come and sing with us. We currently have a man in our baritone section who is 17 years old and a bass singer who is 91.
You don't have to be a trained musician to sing with us. For those who do not have a formal music background, we provide learning tracks. Organization provides schools and clinics to help members learn music and improve their vocal performance.
The Puget Sounders meet at 6:30 p.m. every Monday evening at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd at 1601 North St., SE, in Olympia.
