Tulsa Founders Chorus thrives in part because of the commitment of the people in leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our ensemble tick:

 

 

Chapter President - Robert (Bob) McCullough

Bob has served as a member of the Founder's Chorus.  A multi decade barbershopper and quartetter, Bob sings lead in the chorus.  He has been instrumental in putting the chorus on the path of improving its sound and championing a high level of performance quality as the best way of attracting talented singers from the Greater Tulsa area to join our ranks.  His choice of creating a Vision Statement: "We are men who provide a creative atmosphere for an enjoyable singing experience in 4part acapella harmony". This ties into our Vision Statement, "To seek, develop, use and enhance the skills and talents of men while providing an uplifting environment for personal and musical growth.  We desire to come together as a brotherhood to experience the joy of singing 4 part acapella harmony".
