The Classic Chordsmen quartet enjoys entertaining audiences by singing a variety of music, from show songs to inspirational songs, along with a few novelty numbers. The a cappella, four-part, harmonies are enthusiastically received by audiences of all ages, at private parties, annual general meetings, in hospitals, retirement and care homes, and church services. They perform at the annual shows of the Twin City Harmonizers and at Christmas shows in the tri-city area. Singing Valentines are popular hits every year. The quartet supports the “Ontario Harmonize for Speech Fund”, a charity that provides funds for speech-related programs at schools, hospitals and treatment centers throughout Ontario.

For the Twin City Harmonizers Christmas show in 2015, the chorus needed several quartets to do multiple parts of a Christmas carol medley number. We were asked individually to see if we would do one of the pieces of the medley and we did come up with a quartet. At the time Cal Cressman was singing the baritone part. We stayed together after Christmas and enjoyed singing together. Cal put up a heroic fight against cancer but passed away in 2016. Terry (from Kitchener) stepped in to sing baritone and we continue with Bev (from Elmira) singing bass, Richard (from Kitchener) singing tenor and Dave (from St Marys) singing lead. The name CSQ (Christmas Show Quartet!!) was a quick and easy name that has stuck. We’re enjoying our time together and the harmony we can make…most of the time.
To book CSQ for a performance, call or email Dave or (226) 661-0059 or [email protected].
