Update on our Spring Show
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and directives from governmental authorities and our own Barbershop Harmony Society – and in the interest of public health and safety – The New Tradition is canceling its spring show. Our shows are a critical source of the income we use to run our chorus. We have music to purchase, a rehearsal hall to rent, and a director to pay, even if we don’t sell tickets to a show. We would greatly appreciate your support during this pandemic crisis. If you were planning to come to our show — or if you just love and support our chorus and barbershop harmony — any donation would be greatly appreciated.
Call 800-746-9246 for information on how to support the New Tradition.
Who We Are
The New Tradition Chorus is an award-winning men’s barbershop chorus located in Northbrook, Illinois. Chartered in 1982, this Illinois District chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society has a long-standing reputation for delighting audiences through exciting harmonies and memorable performances of songs spanning decades and genres.
Our Mission Statement
Through a cappella performances of diverse musical styles, the New Tradition Chorus strives to delight audiences and enrich lives through song. The chorus is committed to helping men who love to sing become the finest performers they can be, both as individuals and as members of an ensemble dedicated to making and sharing great music.
If our mission of pursuing musical excellence with fellow brothers in harmony appeals to you, we’d love to hear from you, and we invite you to come join us for a rehearsal! Our membership is open to men of all ages, and we’re always looking for new members. We rehearse every Tuesday night from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Temple Beth-El in Northbrook, IL
We sing at nursing homes, and hospitals as well and organize a youth program (youth in harmony) that we sponsor every year where we work with a high school to educate students in our style of music . Last year we initiated a community 6 week “Free Singing Lesson” program to the which welcomed men as well as women.
