About Singing Men of Arkansas:
Singing Men of Arkansas is an auditioned men’s choir pursuing professional excellence in choral sound. Utilizing a broad variety of repertoire, SMA endeavors to inspire and entertain audiences through dynamic choral performance.
From its beginnings 10 years ago, the group has performed for tens of thousands of people in large and small venues throughout Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas–and even internationally in Ireland. Gospel music legend Bill Gaither has requested SMA for many of his “Homecoming” arena concerts, calling SMA “one of my favorite choirs in America.” The group recently accompanied Christian music superstar Sandi Patty on her Farewell Tour.
Singing Men of Arkansas always has room for new members. Auditions are held in January and August. If you were a singer in a high school choir and you still sound good in the shower, there may be a place for you on the risers with SMA!
