_What is a Barbershop Chorus?
A barbershop chorus is a chorus that sings a cappella music in the barbershop style. Most barbershop choruses belong to a larger association of practitioners such as the Barbershop Harmony Society, Sweet Adelines International or Harmony, Inc.
Choruses may have as few as 12 or as many as 150 members singing. Choruses normally sing with a director, as distinct from quartets.
Unlike a quartet, a chorus need not have equal numbers singing each voice part. The ideal balance in a chorus is about 40% bass, 30% lead, 20% baritone and 10% tenor singers.
What is an "Open Rehearsal?"
We are looking for singers to join the thousands of members in countries all over the world who value the joy of singing chord-ringing, fun-filled music. We have regularly-scheduled GUEST NIGHTS throughout the year where you will have a chance to meet our members, hear us rehearse, join in on a couple of songs, and enjoy some delicious goodies (especially Lou Ann's famous fudge!)
You can also just drop in on an open rehearsal---most Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.---but please DO give Beverly Dale a call first to verify the meeting. And don't forget to complete the CONTACT FORM on the Meet the Director page!
