The Beehive Statesmen were very active this holiday season.  We provided 11 concerts in 19 days to a wide audience.  These included our annual Christmas show, a concert in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square and concerts for 5 different senior/assisted living centers.  We enjoyed the opportunity to share our love of barbershop music with such diverse audiences and hope you will join us at our future events in the coming year!

Pirate Invasion

The hallowed halls of the Sons of the Utah Pioneers (SUP) building were invaded on June 1st and 2nd by dozens of fearsome buccaneers sailing in on the S. S. Lida Rose. The pirates, led by Captain Penny Peshell and First Officer Paul Barlow, arrived just in time to start celebrating the 70th birthday of the Beehive Statesmen Barbershop Chorus. Both the Friday evening show, and the Saturday matinee, were loaded with privateers, barbershop classic choral pieces, barbershop quartets, and one-legged jokes.

The Statesmen, presenting their 70th annual Spring show as part of their 70th birthday party, were supported by 3 quartets, 4th Street, SLiC City, and Staying Alive.

The Beehive Statesmen's Spring 2017 show was a smashing success, with an audience of nearly 300.  The  younger folks delighted in songs like "I Will  Go Sailing No More, (from Toy Story 2), and "Be Our Guest", (from Beauty and the Beast), while the more seasoned audience members enjoyed old favorites like "Danny Boy" and "God Bless America".  The Statesmen's efforts were bolstered by Rocky Mountain District Quartet Champions "The Pine" and by three local quartets, Fourth Street, SLiC City and Deck of Bards.
