The Westminster Chorus
The Westminster Chorus (formerly known as the Harmony Showcase Chorus) is a men's a cappella chorus based in Westminster, California. They are the 2010 and 2007 International Chorus Champions of the Barbershop Harmony Society and are composed almost entirely of men under the age of 30.
The town of Westminster, in Orange County, CA has supported a barbershop chapter for almost half a century; but by the 1990s, it had an aging membership and no active performing chorus. In 2002 a small group of younger men from the Masters of Harmony chorus in nearby Santa Fe Springs, CA decided they would like to try to start a barbershop chorus with the mission of bringing younger men together to make music with others their own age. Founding member Terry Ghiselli approached the men of the Westminster chapter, which at the time only boasted 8 members, and they were glad to allow the teens to pick up and use the chapter charter in order to produce their vision of a youth-oriented chorus.
Disqualified in 2002 due to membership irregularities. Ineligible to compete in 2007-08 due to International Gold Medal.
