About

Our History:
From North Front Sound’s humble beginnings in 2014 with 10 singers above a garage in Kaysville we have grown to around 30 active and dedicated members, and in 2018 we chartered as the Golden Spike Utah chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  Our goal is to have a lot of fun through musical excellence.  We have enjoyed performing all over the Northern Wasatch Front for church groups, retirement communities, and corporate and private events. Though the chorus is centered in the Davis County area, members come from all over the place, spanning from Utah County to Cache County. You should come sing with us too.

 

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide fun, uplifting experiences through music to ourselves, our fellow chorus members, our families, and our community. We will achieve this harmony by consistently striving for musical excellence, promoting fraternity, encouraging individual participation and commitment, fostering learning and growth, and inviting involvement in ways that are affordable, accessible, and considerate of the values of our members and community.
