We meet each week in Calvary Lutheran Church located in San Lorenzo, CA. The chorus represents the Fremont-Hayward Chapter, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which was chartered in 1996 as the Fremont-Milpitas Chapter in the east San Francisco Bay Area. The chapter filled a void in the a cappellacommunity of southern Alameda County.
In 2003, the chapter organized In Harmony for Asia (IHFA) which raised over $13,000 for the tsunami victims in south eastern Asia.
In the spring of 2006, The New Dimension Chorus was ranked both the Plateau A Champions and Most Improved Chorus at division contest, and was invited to perform at the Fall District contest, where the chorus was ranked 21st in the 89 chapter Far Western District, including California, Hawaii, Nevada, Arizona, and a portion of Utah.
At the Spring Convention in 2007 at Woodside High School, the New Dimension Chorus officially became a "B-Level Chorus," acheiving a combined score of 62.0, and earning a spot at the Far Western District Fall Convention in Phoenix, Arizona September 28-30, 2007. The New Dimension Chorus remained the Plateau A Champions in the Northern California West/Hawaii division of the Far Western District through 2007.
The New Dimension Chorus rehearses under the direction of our director, Demaster M. Survine IV and assistant director,Bill Sandau. The Chorus holds continuous vocal classes throughout the year.
The coming year promises to be another blockbuster year for the New Dimension Chorus with two new chapter quartets planning for the Northern California Novice Quartet Competition in 2009. Additionally, for the first time in chapter history, a member of our chapter has been selected to the Far Western District Board of Directors. The year was also a banner year for the New Dimension Chorus' Singing Valentines.
The New Dimension Chorus is seeking men who enjoy singing four part harmony in the a cappella style, unaccompanied by instruments. Men who sing in the shower, or "bathtub baritones" are always welcome. We are looking to form an ever-growing singing fraternity of men drawn together by their love of singing close harmony and wish to perpetuate and share that style of music throughout the community and the world. We strive to be leaders in the cause of preserving and encouraging vocal music as an enjoyable recreational activity and an essential element in one's cultural well-being.
We are one of several choruses in the San Francisco Bay Area; other local choruses include:

The New Dimension Chorus remembers and pays tribute to Lloyd Steinkamp, 1927-2007.
