Tom Alvord grew up in a large family who loves singing harmony. He organized Barbershop quartets in High school and college and in public schools where he taught choral music. His first community chorus was the Farmington Valley Chorale. Tom went on to direct the Insurance City Chorus of Hartford, the Pioneer Valley Chordsmen of Springfield and the Valley Shore Sweet Adeline Chorus of East Lyme CT.
Tom says he joined up with us because he loves the camaraderie of The Valley Chordsmen and can
never get enough of those Barbershop chords.
