Chapter President – John Englander

John is your typical shower singer who had not done any active singing since HS which was many years earlier. He and his wife started attending the Granite Statesmen shows when a friend joined the chorus. After five years of saying that looks like it could be fun after each concert, his wife said “then do it or shut up”. John did and was immediately hooked on the singing and camaraderie.


Having no formal musical training, John wondered if he was good enough to sing with the group. What he found over the past 10 years was that those who have that training are more than willing to share their knowledge and encourage others to continually learn and improve. What it really is all about is the enthusiasm for the harmony and sharing it with others. He encourages anyone to give it a try. You will be glad you did!
