What We Do

Coming together from communities throughout the Bay Area, we are dedicated to promoting, teaching, and achieving excellence in a cappella choral music performance. Through performances, charitable activities, support of music education, and partnership with other organizations, we share our love of harmony with the community.


WEEKLY REHEARSALS

Weekly rehearsals in San Jose, CA, are a perfect combination of fun and hard work, where singers of all ages and backgrounds learn how to make incredible music together. We'd love for you to join us.


TECHNICAL MASTERY

A secret to our success as a world-class chorus is our commitment to the continuing musical education of every member. Our director and experienced music team regularly provide individual and group instruction in vocal, choral, and performance technique.


SHOWS

Whatever the genre, VIH always seeks to deliver the very best entertainment value. Our varied repertoire, exceptional choral sound, impassioned performing, and frequent top-quality guest stars ensure memorable show experiences that keep our audiences coming back.


COMPETITIONS

Competition provides extra excitement, focus, and motivation, and a chance to learn from top-quality international judges. We are lucky not only to be in the strongest District of the BHS, but also to count five top international judges as members of our chorus.


AFTERGLOWS

Brought together by our love of harmony, we often carry our singing well into the night, following most rehearsals and shows with afterglow parties full of song and fellowship. All it takes to join in is a desire to have fun, listen, learn, and ring chords.


DIVERSE MUSIC

In addition to the exciting Barbershop sound that forms a cornerstone of our repertoire, VIH explores music from a wide range of styles and periods. The common theme is our passion for excellence in harmony, vocal production, and performance excellence.


DIVERSE MEMBERS

Whether you are a venture capitalist, teacher, construction worker, engineer, student, or retiree, you’ll find members who share your interests as well as your love of song. We are a diverse group of men who share a common interest in finding joy performing great music.


LIFELONG FRIENDSHIPS

Few experiences in life form a stronger foundation for enduring friendships than singing together. Building a successful chorus takes exceptional teamwork, and as a result, the experiences we share on the risers are life-affirming and long-lasting.
