Dale Bird, an Army veteran and our Bass Section Lead, started in Barbershop with the Louisville Times Chorus 20 years ago. Dale had no idea that he had stumbled into one of the best small choruses in the country, but after only a few years his career moved him out of the area. After a 16 year hiatus, he rediscovered Barbershop with the Old Dominion Chorus. Dale has also sung with another local chapter, the Fairfax Jubilaires. Dale is currently the bass in a local quartet, LoCo 4. Dale is extremely competitive, and the Barbershop contest cycles give him a continual challenge to improve his singing and performance.
