The Kingsmen Harmony Chorus are off on a 12 day tour of the USA at the end of May after an 18 month fund raising campaign to offset much of the cost of the tour. Thirty chorus members and their wives and children will be going.

Roy Hann who is Musical Director, Founder and Hon Life President of the Kingsmen has been particularly instrumental in getting this tour off the ground with his many USA contacts in the barbershop world. This will be the third time the Kingsmen have visited the USA with tours in 1994 (Los Angeles) and 1997 (Las Vegas).

The tour starts in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (and the Amish Community) with hosting by the Red Rose Chorus and performances with the ladies chorus, Vocal Harmonix (formerly Red Rose City Chorus). Then on to Washington DC to be hosted by the Alexandria Harmonizers who are themselves former world champions and have the honour of having US Senator John Glenn (former astronaut and now deceased) as one of their admirers and supporters. He even took a Harmonizers CD with him into space!

On then to the final part of the tour to New York to be hosted by the Westchester Chordsmen and concluding with a joint concert in New York.

They will be taking a 12 page booklet promoting the South Devon area and wish to offer a massive ‘thank you’ to their sponsors for supporting them. You can download the USA Tour Booklet here.
Many thanks to Olli Nute, Director of ‘OWN Design’ for designing and producing such a stunning booklet.
