    We are so proud to have been invited once again to provide the pre-meeting entertainment and presentation of the National Anthem for the Savannah River Plant Federal Credit Union's Annual Member Meeting.  We were well received by the audience as we presented a modified version of our "Fabulous 50's" Show.  Thanks to those with the Credit Union who invited us back! We'd love to do it again!
  • Our 26th Annual Singing Valentine Program was a great success

    This notice is maybe a little late, but we still want to thank all the romantics across the Aiken-Augusta Metro for trusting the quartets of the Garden City Chorus to deliver your sentiments to your sweethearts, mothers, daughters, or other loved ones this past St. Valentine's Day!  The three-day delivery period this year, along with a new and untried booking program made things a little tricky for "Valentines Central", but we pulled it off. With many "lessons learned" that will be passed along to the program developer, we are confident that most of the bugs (invisible, for the most part to our customers), will be worked out, and we'll have a fabulous system in place next year to take your orders and payments, and carry that information forward in a meaningful way to better schedule our quartets.

    Put us on your calendar now for mid January as a reminder to place your order for a Singing Valentine in 2017!

    The guys are working hard to polish up our Special Valentine's Day songs, with YOUR special "someone" in mind! Now in our 26th year, we can count the number of recipients in the THOUSANDS! We have many customers who return year after year after year. Not only do their sweethearts love the attention, they must get a little attention of their own, which would explain why they say "There's just nothing better out there!"

    So what are you waiting for? Follow the links from our Home Page, and get your order placed today. Why, you'll even save $15 dollars off of each and every package we offer - just order before midnight on February 9th.  The Earlybird pricing goes away at the stroke of midnight. With packages starting at just $50, we're sure you'll be pleased with your choice.

    Delivery Dates this year are Friday, February 12th, Saturday, February 13th, and Sunday, February 14th!

    Happy Valentine's Day, from the men of the Garden City Chorus!

    We had another FANTASTIC Christmas Preformance Season!  We presented our Christmas Program SEVEN TIMES this year, all across the Central Savannah River Area - from Fort Gordon to Aiken! Five of these performances have become "regulars", and we appreciate these entities for having us back year after year! We reached audiences numbering in the hundreds with our Christmas Cheer, singing old standards of the season.  We'd love to add YOUR Christmas Party, drop-in, dinner, or other event to our calendar next year!

    Next up, is our Annual Singing Valentines Program.  Why not book one of our quartets to deliver a special message of song to your sweetheart?  Online ordering will be up and going soon.  Deliveries this year will be over a three-day period: Friday, February 12, Saturday, February 13, and Sunday, February 14, Valentines Day.  This schedule will allow us to deliver to your honey at her school, or other place of employment.  Mark your calendar NOW to place your order BEFORE February 10th to receive a substantial early bird discount!

    Until then, the men of the Garden City Chorus wish you a memorable and meaningful Christmas, and all the best in 2016!
  • 52nd Annual Show Now "in the books"!
  •  
  •  Thu, Oct 15 2015
    The Fabulous 50's, the 52nd CONSECUTIVE Annual Show of the Garden City Chorus is now history!  We can report that "History was Made", too!  For the first time in the history of the Augusta Chapter, we held our Annual Show in North Augusta, SC.  The wonderful Wesley Center of Grace United Methodist Church served as our venue. 

    Every time one attempts something new, there are a lot of unknowns.  We went into this venue with confidence that it would meet our needs; that a "show atmosphere" could be maintained (in keeping with our show history); that our regular patrons would be open to the change; and finally, that the move to North Augusta would better serve our South Carolina Patrons. We learned a lot, and the concensus is that we met each and every goal!  Attendance set a record in recent history.  With over 500 people in attendance, we recall that those numbers have not been achieved since the mid 1980's!

    We were proud to have 4 singers performing on stage with us for the first time!  Our local Chapter Quartets performed well, our guests, the Harmony River Chorus of Sweet Adelines, International, were an added treat, and our Master of Ceremonies, Bill Karp, added so much to the show, and to the mood of "the fifties".

    A special thanks to our AWESOME Featured act, the award winning quartet, TNS!  Thanks, Dusty, David, Ryan, and Rick!  You really made our 52nd Annual Show special, and you were a SENSATIONAL HIT with our audience!

    So, now the members of the Garden City Chorus move on into preparations for our busy Christmas Season.  We are currently taking bookings for the season.  Our calendar fills quickly, so contact us soon to book the chorus for your annual Christmas/Holiday function.  We are favorites at corporate parties, executive dinners, Holiday open houses, church Christmas dinners and parties, and retirement center Christmas functions!

    Thanksgiving is not far away, and the men of The Garden City Chorus hope you have a great time with family and friends as we take time to pause and be thankful for all we have.

    Keep the Whole World Singing!

    The Men of The Garden City Chorus

We have FREE LEMONADE for all who will sing a "tag" with us.

It's FUN, it's SIMPLE, and it will MAKE YOUR DAY!

    We will also have tickets available at our booth for a discounted price ONLY THROUGH SUNDAY, and ONLY AT OUR BOOTH.  Our 52nd Annual Show, "The Fabulous 50's" is next Saturday, September 26 at the Wesley Center of Grace UMC in North Augusta. Along with the Garden City Chorus, we will feature three of our Chapter Quartets, the Harmony River Chorus of Sweet Adelines, International, and one of their quartets.  Our FEATURED ACT is a fantastic quartet from Nashville, TNS!,  TNS is a Dixie District Champion Quartet, and multi-year International Quartet Semi-Finalist.  Their energetic set alone is well worth the price of admission!

    So, come out this weekend and visit our booth at Arts in the Heart of Augusta, and get your tickets to help us celebrate "The Fabulous 50's"!
