The Rivertown Sound

This quartet was formed in 1985 by members of our Chorus, inspired by the great variety of music in St. Louis. They are dedicated to preserving good singing and four-part harmony. While they continue to sing traditional songs from the turn-of-the-century, many audiences have requested songs from the Fifties. As a result, they have become St. Louis' premiere "Doo Wop Quartet" and are honored to hold that position. (Contact: Dan Monahan at

The Jeff Connection

In 2010, chorus director Jim Raspberry decided to create a quartet of chapter members who would like to practice together for an hour before weekly chorus rehearsals. After much hard work, they have created a flexible repertoire of barbershop songs. Their specialty are gospel and sacred songs. They are fortunate to be asked to sing at church services and events all over Jefferson County, which is the origin of the name of their quartet.   Contact:

Cobblestone Four

This is one of our latest quartets, and includes Carl Brookshier, Steve Greer, Bill Dean and Dave Hentchel. They have been performing in shows for a couple of years, and everyone enjoys their talents. Dave is one of our newer chorus members, and he has sung with various other quartets before he moved to the area and joined our group.
