Barbershop Quartet Singing Lives in Dundalk Maryland!
Wherever people love to sing!
You don’t have to be a great singer – just be able to carry a tune. You don’t have to be able to read music – we’ll teach you your part and give you learning aids. You don’t have to be able to sing your part alone in a quartet right away – you can sing with our barbershop chorus, which sings the same songs –until you feel comfortable with your part. Then, look among the other members for three other men and form your own quartet, if you wish.
In the meantime, you can learn and perform many beautiful songs until you know them well, enjoying the camaraderie that accompanies regular association with others who love barbershop quartet singing. You’ll never be alone in your efforts… there will always be someone ready and willing to help.
Don’t think you can sing well enough? You probably sing better than you think. If you’ve ever sung in the shower or have found yourself singing along with the music on the radio, you’ll love barbershopping! Visit one of our meetings and look us over. You won’t be pressured to join and you’ll have a lot of fun singing with us.
If you would like to reach us, please fill out the form on the Join Us page and we’ll get right back to you!
