Board Member Opportunity With Men’s Barbershop Chorus Non-Profit

The Alliance Chorus is currently seeking board members with experience in Grant-Writing, Fine Arts, Fundraising and Growth. We are seeking candidates who have connections. See below for more information about the position(s). Please submit your information through our candidate portal below for consideration.

The Alliance Chorus is a men’s barbershop chorus formed in 1999 for the singing of four-part barbershop harmony by men who shared a vision to focus their time, efforts, and energy on singing and performing at the highest possible level. They believed there were other male performers who shared their passion to be “In Tune With Excellence,” and they were correct. Members of the chorus span an age range of nine decades; and, while most live in the central Ohio area, many travel from Cincinnati, Dayton, Akron, and Cleveland, as well as from Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia to prepare and perform with the ensemble. All are dedicated to developing their vocal, visual, and performance skills and to maintaining the chapter’s world-class performance level. Aside from a common love of four-part harmony, the men of The Alliance are a very diverse group comprised of students, corporate executives, construction equipment operators, doctors, and a host of other callings. Our range of ages, occupations, and experience creates a distinctive brotherhood rooted in harmony.
