Rick Hochsprung (tenor) Rick loves music! He began playing the drums at 9 years old and continued to learn and play all kinds of music through college and a 2-year professional career on the drum set playing popular music around the Midwest. After a few years lull in music, he fell in love with singing with the Harvard/Radcliffe Chorus in the Boston area and continued with other groups over a 40-year period including the Manchester Choral Society in NH, NH Master Chorale, madrigal singing group and church choirs and praise band. Discovering barbershop singing about 7 years ago, he has embraced singing the high harmony part with the Concord Coachmen and with The Capital Four quartet. His other interests are part time work as a physical therapist, playing with his grandchildren in Boston, meditation and hiking.

Louis Jacob (lead) Louis is the newest addition to The Capital Four joining in 2019.  He has been singing with the Concord Coachmen Chorus for over 13 years and has sung lead for both Home Town Pride and Warm Regards quartets.

Larry Dorr (bass) Larry started singing after retiring and moving from Maryland to Maine, in 2001. He joined the Tri-City chorus based in Biddeford, Maine. and sang bass with them for five years. Personal circumstances required him to take a break from singing for about three years, and when he did return to a chorus it was with the Yankee Clipper barbershop chorus of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Soon after that he became the bass of the Coastal Harmony quartet and sang with them for about ten years. Sadly, neither the Yankee Clipper Chorus nor the Coastal Harmony quartet exist today. Larry is now a proud member of the Concord Coachmen Chorus and The Capital Four quartet." 

Brian Riley (baritone) was introduced to Barbershop upon the invitation to a Chapter show by a good friend. Impressed by the fun and excitement exhibited by the chorus members he joined the Yankee Clipper Chorus the very next week even though he had never sung outside of the shower. Soon thereafter he found himself singing bass with a new quartet who went by the name of Full House

In 2013 he joined the Concord Coachmen Chorus in Concord, NH, again singing bass. As membership changed he switched to singing baritone in order to experience the special challenges that the part provides. Shortly after joining the chorus he found himself singing bass in a pickup quartet by the name of Whatever Four who performed on multiple occasions. 

Looking for a new challenge he decided to try his hand at singing baritone with the chorus and fell in love with the sound. Shortly thereafter he joined a new quartet that was being formed: The Capital Four.
