Welcome!

The Holland Windmill Chorus

Barberpole1We are men who enjoy singing together in barbershop harmony. Barbershop music consists of a lead part with three supporting parts making four part harmony......the songs and styles make our distinctive sound. We are based in Holland, Michigan. Guests can stop in to any rehearsal for a warm welcome.

 

Please visit the rest of our site . . . our history is rich with award-winning quartets, and our chapter services can bring a smile to your family, friends, and co-workers.

 

 

 


The Holland Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society will be folding as of July 20th, 2021.  Thank you to all our fans and supporters over the last 75 years!


The Holland Windmill Chorus hopes to emerge as a locally-based barbershop singing group in the Fall of 2021.  If you'd like more information on that, please contact me.

Our Last Hurrah

 

Members of Holland Windmill Chorus regret to announce that our cherished tradition of annual Tulip Time Barbershop Shows, unbroken for 66 years, will end in 2020.  We had planned a grand final show for 2020, but unfortunately, the 2020 Tulip Time Festival was cancelled due to the pandemic.

Our first Tulip Time show was in 1954, in the newly built Holland Civic Center.  It was originally called "The Parade of Quartets”, fitting in among the featured parades that marked each day of the Festival. For many years, it was the "must see" event of the Festival, ultimately becoming the longest continuously running Tulip Time show. 

We extend a heartfelt Thank You to all who have joined us for this event over the years, and to the Local Arts & Culture Series sponsors who have supported our efforts to keep barbershop harmony alive in Holland through the years.  It has been a pleasure and an honor to sing for you, and to be a part of Holland's unique Tulip Time Festival for so long.
