About Us

Who is Acappella Road?

Acappella Road is a mens' chorus that specializes in singing a cappella four-part harmony.  The diverse repertoire of songs performed by the chorus ranges from contemporary and classic to modern and popular. 

We are Calgary's premier a cappella mens' chorus and have performed and competed in Canada and the United States.  We are a Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, but our music is not traditional barbershop!

We rehearse weekly on Mondays at 7:00 PM at McDougall United Church (8516 Athabasca Street SE) and welcome interested men to drop in at any time to see what we do and even sing a note or two with us.  You don't have to read music or have singing training.  You just need to be willing to dip your toe in the water and try us out.  We focus on 'Excellence in Performance', 'Camaraderie', and 'Community Outreach' and are active supporters of Calgary charities.  But we also believe that singing should be fun and rewarding for us and for our audiences.  

We were founded in 1986 as Western Hospitality Singers.  We re-branded in 2019 as Acappella Road, celebrating our a cappella music style.  ACAPPELLA ROAD - Our History - Our Future! - YouTube

We now proudly include a women's chorus, Pitch Please, in our organization.  They are AWESOME!  (visit their page on this site through the main menu above).   This means that we have the opportunity to sing mixed arrangements with them.  For example, together we have sung 'Africa' by Toto, and 'A Brave New World' in recent shows.  Check out our Youtube channel videos. Channel content - YouTube Studio 

For 2024 we are starting on January 9, 2024 to prepare for our spring show on April 13, 2024.  Exciting new repertoire to learn and perform!  You could be with us as a guest.  No audition!  No singing experience necessary!  Just learn several songs and join us in entertaining a warm and enthusiastic audience!  Contact us anytime by using the Contact button, or phone Doug at 403-651-8513.
