|Bill Hickman is the current President of the Evergreen District, Past President of the Bellevue Chapter, and is a certified Leadership Facilitator for the Barbershop Harmony Society. As the son of a professional musician Bill always had music in his life, but his barbershop journey didn’t begin until 1980 at a guest night for the Fairfax Jubilaires while he was serving with the US Navy at the Pentagon.
Since the Navy moved him around a lot, he became a barbershop nomad, eventually singing with 10 different choruses in 6 different barbershop districts. In addition to the Fairfax Jubilaires, these have included the Masters of Harmony (California), The Narragansett Bay Chorus (Rhode Island), the Hemil Hempstead Highwaymen (BABS), the Big Chicken Chorus and Atlanta Vocal Project (Georgia), as well as the Kitsap Chordsmen, Northwest Sound, Northwest Mix, and Classic Sound, here in Washington.
Bill also has sung in numerous quartets, winning the 2001 Southeast Regional Harmony Sweepstakes with InDeCiSion, and currently singing with the mixed quartet Under the Radar. Outside of barbershop, Bill has been teaching leadership for over 50 years. Over the past 20 years he has taught leadership seminars to nearly 2000 business professionals at all levels representing over 900 US and international companies.
