What we're about

Founded in December 2014 under the direction of Larry Bomback and Eric Engelhardt, Rittenhouse Sound strives to preserve and evolve the rich American art form of barbershop harmony and a cappella singing. Our main objective is to provide the greater Philadelphia region with high-quality public performances, educational workshops, and participatory musical experiences.

We're looking for male singers in the Philadelphia area who have a passion for performance and a love of music.

Online event

We're Back in Business (and back on Zoom)!

Are you a (vaccinated) man in the Philadelphia area who loves to sing? We invite you to sing with with the Rittenhouse Sound and join us for our Tuesday rehearsals, which are resuming at the Philadelphia Ethical Society, 2nd Floor. located at 1906 Rittenhouse Square. We would love to see you at our rehearsal.

If you would like more info about the chorus, email us at [masked].

Guests are welcome to drop into Zoom to listen to the rehearsal, but we'd love to have you pick up a guest binder and join in the music-making. If you enjoy the rehearsal, please come back. If you'd like to become a part of Rittenhouse Sound, you can audition after you've attended three straight rehearsals.

While auditioning sounds scary, keep in mind that all the current members were in your shoes at one point! Above all, Rittenhouse Sound is an environment to make music and enjoy each other's company.

We hope to see you at a rehearsal soon!
