Got Questions?

Here are a number of frequently-asked questions that we get:


How much personal time will it take?

In addition to weekly rehearsals throughout the year, there are 2 annual shows in Spring and the Fall. We also participate in a BHS regional competition in March or April each year, and have an annual weekend retreat to focus on preparing for competition. We tend to perform in and around our area about 2-4 times per year for local festivals, business events, charitable events, as well as participating in Christmas and arts festival events.


What is the cost?

We believe that you just can't put a price on a good time!

Having said that, all guests are welcomed to attend our rehearsals free of charge.

If you decide barbershop is for you, we invite you to audition for the group proper.

Then once we've got you in good, we'll start hitting you up for things like membership dues and such.


What is the audition procedure?

After singing with us as a guest three times, you are eligible to audition for the chorus.

Auditioning consists of us sneaking up on you, and "spontaneously suggesting" that you sing one of our regular songs with a quartet. While you do this unawares, someone will slink around to the side and listen to you while you sing. If you haven't driven them away by the end of the song, why, you're in!


Do I have to be a great singer?

You don't have to be, but it helps.


How do I learn the songs?

We have all manner of learning tracks, and sheet music, or "spots" as we call them.
