  21. What an ending! Wow! Is it even Possible to hold a note that long?? Tremendous. SPEBSQSA should be calling any day now to get this group a recording contract. (Yes, it’s the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America.) Great job. The least stiff chorus I’ve ever seen! But that’s how’d you’d behave if if were just a quartet, right? 97/100.

  70. Great sound. Silk City Chorus has my vote………go Jerry!

  71. This group is one of the best things about Manchester. Our family has enjoyed listening to many of their performances throughout Connecticut, and they are an inspiration to our young children. Barbershop is a musical style they wouldn’t otherwise have been exposed to and this group makes it a real pleasure to not only listen, but learn about the craft of how their music comes together. Bravo for a great performance and I hope we keep hearing more!

  72. The Silk City Chorus does the City of Village Charm proud sounding great and having a good time performing………so very entertaining

  73. The Silk City Chorus does the City of Village Charm proud, sounding great and having a good time performing… entertaining!!!!!

  75. Bill & Gail Langlois March 24, 2011 at 11:12 am

    Great sound and great stage presence. Loved it.

  76. Great Group!

  77. Love it!

  78. Manchester’s Silk City Chorus is a treasure. These wonderful gentlemen lift their voices together to treat us with great music . It’s obvious they are enjoying themselves but the songs they sing come after much rehearsing. Anyone who has ever sung without accompanying music understands just how much of a challenge it is to stay on key for one song much less all the time. Thanks to you all for another great performance. Looking forward to many more.

  79. In this age of rap, it’s so good to hear good close harmony on songs that will be around forever. Anyone familiar with singing knows that singing without earphones or backup instruments, with the goal of blending perfectly, is difficult, but oh, when they ring those chords: it’s heaven. The Silk City Chorus does the tradition of barbershop harmony proud!

  80. Great job! Love the four part harmony

  81. Nice job guys.

  82. Great job. Looking forward to your next annual show in January.

  83. Excellent singing as usual.

  84. Enjoyable to hear. Fun to watch.

  85. They did a very good job and really showed that they were into the song.

  86. Great that you do not use printed music.

  87. Good size of group makes a great sound.
    Keep it up.
