In aChord Men’s Ensemble is a small vocal group focusing on tight harmonies, jazz, pop and seasonal music. In 2000, several friends came together from their association in a few community choruses around the San Diego area. The goal was to form an exclusive small men’s choral group with an emphasis in quality vocal sound. Blending four-part harmonies, the group’s repertoire includes standards from the 30’s and 40’s, classic hits from the 50’s through 90’s and current millennial favorites such as Jason Mraz, Kelly Clarkson and more.
The group recorded and released their first CD album in 2001. Entitled “For All We Know”, it won ‘Out Magazine’s ‘ award for Top Three Best Recording by LGBT performance groups for that year. The recording features a thirteen song set including a variety of classic songs like ‘Georgia On My Mind’, ‘It’s Only a Paper Moon’, and ‘And So It Goes’.
In aChord performs regularly throughout the San Diego area and often participates for community and charitable events. The group is a California 501©(3) nonprofit corporation and a member of GALA Choruses.
