‘Virginians’ to perform at Urbanna Baptist Church

Urbanna Baptist Church at 121 Watling Street will present “The Virginians Barbershop Chorus and Quartets in Concert” on Saturday, June 9, at 7 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public.

The Virginians Barbershop Chorus has been the premiere barbershop chorus in Richmond for over 65 years. The members of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) have performed for audiences all around Virginia, on the East Coast and even internationally in London, England, and St. Petersburg, Russia.  

The Virginians compete with other barbershop choruses on the East Coast and are multiple-times past champions of the Southern Division of the Mid-Atlantic District, past chorus champion of the Mid-Atlantic District, and competed in the BHS International competition in Kansas City.

In 2017 the group won the Southern Division Plateau III Chorus Championship and placed in the top 10 choruses at the district competition. “We recently defended our title by winning the Southern Division and will be heading to the district competition in October,” said a group spokesperson.

The mission of the Virginians is to provide wholesome, top quality music and showmanship, fellowship, and service to the community. Members come from the greater Richmond area, Ashland, Hopewell, Tappahannock, Urbanna, Williamsburg, Fredericksburg, Farmville, Raleigh, N.C., Winston Salem, N.C., and Binghamton, N.Y.  

The group’s musical repertoire is extensive and entertaining with contemporary, rock and roll, gospel, doo-wop, seasonal, patriotic and great barbershop standards. Men of all ages and musical experience are invited to join the group every Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Chamberlayne Baptist Church, 215 Wilkinson Rd., Richmond.
