Welcome to the Big Chicken Chorus - Barbershop Harmony!

The Big Chicken Chorus Supports Students


In its ongoing commitment to sharing choral music with the community, The Big Chicken Chorus provides scholarships to deserving students who would not otherwise be able to afford the financial burden of participating in choral activities. In a recent Cobb County Board of Education meeting, The Big Chicken Chorus awarded $1797 to Marietta High School's choral program, allowing three students to attend seminars at Walt Disney World, where they will learn how to become more accomplished performers.


Entertaining audiences with great singing and good, clean humor since 1986!

The Marietta, GA Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a.k.a. the Big Chicken Chorus, strives to preserve and encourage the singing of Barbershop Harmony in a professional and congenial atmosphere. Our purpose is to enrich the quality of life in our community, engage our audiences, provide musical education and performance opportunities to the youth of our community, and provide musical challenge and reward to our singers.

We welcome any opportunity to apply our hobby of singing four-part harmony, and have traveled extensively to present our brand of entertainment to a variety of audiences, both young and old!

We rehearse Monday evenings from 7:00pm to 9:30pm at Marietta High School. Any exception to this schedule is noted on the calendar.

We invite all men who love to sing to visit us and join us on the risers.
