In March of 2007 a small huddle of local singers joined to form a Men's Barbershop Chorus, hoping to spread good cheer through song. We became a Chartered Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society in 2008, and recently celebrated our 10th birthday! We've been meeting weekly ever since, and now have a solid core of good singers and a varied repertoire of great songs. We recently voted to invite women to sing with us-- it's the future of Barbershop music! We work on our singing technique and keep each other in line and young at heart.
Barbershop itself is evolving-- it's not just those wonderful old songs anymore (although we sing those too). There's a new breed of talented composers writing exciting and modern arrangements of new and classic tunes, borrowing from jazz, swing, broadway and popular music. Some of these arrangements are smooth and sweet, some are lively and catchy, and some are downright outrageous-- we like to try them all!
