The Fremont Pathfinder Chorus

It is a pleasure having you visit us and browse through our web pages describing our organizational structure, District and International activities, program offerings, service opportunities and much more. As you will see in your e-travels, our web site is always a work in progress, so please be sure to come back often for an update.

We are the Fremont, Nebraska Chapter in the Central States District of The Barbershop Harmony Society. Our name comes from a famous explorer of the western United States, John C. Fremont, for whom our community is named. The Pathfinder Chorus, under the direction of P.D. "Pete" Stibor, has entertained audiences throughout the Midwest and has competed in the Central States District Chorus Contest since the chorus was organized. Our chapter is made up of over 100 men from more than a 20,000 square-mile area surrounding the greater Fremont metropolitian area. Founded in 1972, the chapter has adopted an enthusiastic program that includes music education, participation in Society Competitions, youth outreach, and service to the community. In addition we perform at our annual show and various concerts throughout the year and share the pleasure of barbershop harmony while performing for our communities in a variety of formats. We are happy to say that we are the top-ranked men's barbershop chorus in Nebraska.


2013 Toronto Presentation - Renewed Hope Within Your Chapter

On 6 Jul 2013 the Pathfinder Chorus presented a class in Toronto sponsored by the BHS Harmony University in order to share our processes and transformation from a decent BHS District Chorus to an International Competitor. Here is the text of Renewed Hope Within Your Chapter (PDF) for all to read and share.
