The Greater Indianapolis Chapter and the Circle City Sound chorus are part of the Cardinal District of the international Barbershop Harmony Society.


History

In 1944, forty-five men gathered in the Claypool Hotel, at the corner of Washington and Illinois Streets in downtown Indianapolis, to organize the first barbershop harmony chapter in Indianapolis. Another chapter was formed in Broad Ripple in 1948, and the two chapters merged in 1955 to form the Greater Indianapolis Chapter. In 1958, the chapter adopted “Speed Capital Chorus” as the chorus name, changing it to “Pride of Indy” in 1978, and to “Circle City Sound” in 2003. Since 2007, Circle City Sound has been directed by Garry Texeira, tenor of 2004 International Quartet Champion Gotcha!.

In 2013 they were recognized as one of the Top 10 barbershop choruses in the world, placing 7th in international competition in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
