Voices of California is proud to have the following quartets associated with our chorus. We endorse all of them as excellent singers and entertainers, suitable for any occasion...
One of the Ten Best Quartets in the World!
2011 Far Western District Champions
Artistic License is a Barbershop quartet with a smooth sound, deep musicality and a lighthearted, professional style that audiences easily respond to. Dedicated to furthering the barbershop style and making it accessible to audiences everywhere, Artistic License is the 2011 champions of the highly-competitive Far Western District, an honor won in our very first attempt! In 2016 the quartet earned honors as the 9th best quartet in the world, going up against international competition in Nashville, including groups from as far away as Sweden, England and New Zealand. Based in the greater Sacramento, CA area, Artistic License pleases audiences throughout the country, and we’d love to sing for you sometime soon!
C.O.D is a men’s barbershop quartet that sings four-part harmony, which began in November of 2018. Some folks have asked what C.O.D stands for? Well, we had an initial thought; however, the name we wanted was already taken. We decided to run with the acronym as we needed to get some paperwork processed to register with the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS). The goal of C.O.D is to bring our varied ages, experience, love of barbershop to build memories while performing for audiences and maybe hit a contest now and then to keep the judges on their toes. So, back to the name…we are open to suggestions. What do you think C.O.D stands for?
The Artful Codgers is a barbershop quartet with 292 total years of experience (88 of them actually singing barbershop). They are the 2014 Super Senior Championship Quartet for the Far Western District (FWD) of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) and the 2015 and the 2016 Senior Championship Quartet for the NE Division of the FWD. We placed third overall in the 2016 Senior Championship for the FWD. Dan, Blair and Corley are all members of Voices of California, while tenor Shel is a member at large of BHS. They have a diverse repertoire fitting many occasions, and are ready to entertain audiences big and small.
