We are an acappella barbershop chapter with the Barbershop Harmony Society. No more bowler hats and spats here! We sing Monday nights, 7:00 to 9:30 pm, at the Essex United Church (downstairs hall) in Essex. Are you looking for a great place to come out and sing? Are you already singing in one musical group and wish to add a new and exciting style to that vocal experience? Well, then barbershop singing (4-part a cappella harmony) may be just what you're craving for.
The music, learning tracks, performances, competitions, meeting new friends, camaraderie, and fun are all-inclusive. One of the best vocal environments around. Testaments include things like "great music to sing", "friendly environment", "no pressure", "fun songs", and "I took the acappella plunge and now I look forward to it every week."
We rehearse every Monday night from 7 pm to 9:30 pm at Essex United Church in Essex. Come out and join us. Bring a friend with you. Guaranteed to enjoy it from the first night. Contact Info: Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org (519-839-4027), or see www.sunparlourchorus.com for more details and events.
