Fourté began their musical journey 10 years ago when four members of the Helena Chamber Singers (directed by Dr. Steven Michelson) got together to perform an a cappella quartet piece for the 2004 spring concert. They enjoyed that experience so much that they have been rehearsing and exploring new a cappella music ever since and are having the BEST TIME EVER! It’s been a grand adventure and tremendous fun. They are looking forward to many more quarteting years together.

They continue to perform at concerts, schools, dinners, Helena Art Walks, Out to Lunch series, and other special occasions, including unique Christmas programs.

Members are: Alane Dallas (alto), Karen Keith (soprano), Mike Early (bass), and Bob Nelson (tenor). All live and work in Helena, Montana.
