About us

 

Since its founding, the Huntington Men's Chorus has been bringing the music of the world's greatest choral composers and arrangers to Long Island.

 

The Huntington Men’s Chorus originated in 1949 when a group of Huntington men having vocal talent, choral singing experience, and a desire to foster male choral singing met and formed the Huntington Men’s Chorus.

 

At the first rehearsal in September 1949, James Doty was appointed the Chorus' Musical Director; the group adopted its name the "Huntington Men's Chorus" and Frost Tinklepaugh was elected the Chorus' first president.

 

Over the years that group of 34 men has grown substantially as more men have been attracted to the Chorus and the style and diversity of our programs.  We continue to promote and perform that same wide variety of selections that have been common since our inception.  We hope to continue to entertain the people of Huntington and surrounding communities with the unique sound of male singing for many years in the future.
