Our Chorus Director

Evan Weinzinger is the new front-line director for the West Valley Chorus this year (2017). Having served in the chorus as Assistant Director and Section leader as the Lead and Baritone sections for years under our prior director Ollie Brillhante III, His high school All-State and university music major experience, as well as having musically exceptional genes on both sides of the family tree, will be a big help in this exceptional art form. Evan has directed church choirs and has sung under the hands of many exceptional directors.

Having had his first taste of barbershop harmony in high school but without any chapters in the area, Evan had to wait till his Navy days to join the society. He threw his hat in with the San Diego Sun Harbor Chorus, then directed by Lloyd Steinkamp. Local shows and international competitions were enough to set the hook. Evan even married into barbershop. His in-laws sang in the Davidson Forever Family Quartet. He has been singing barbershop in Northern California since 2009.

In working with their vision of "Everyone in Harmony" the Barbershop Harmony Society has recently opened up the previously male-only organization to anyone who would like to get into singing barbershop (2018), Evan would like to invite everyone, to visit a rehearsal here in Vacaville for an evening of harmony and singing. Having ladies in the chorus will be a new experience for us. The Society is still working out things on their end, we will figure out how to make it work on ours.

"Keep the whole world singing all day long..."
