How To Join Us

Our Chapter is open to men of all ages. Since 2000, we have had members as young as 14 and as old as 94. We share a common love, that of singing.

The best way to get to know us is to visit at one of our regular Wednesday evening Chapter meetings. Spend some time singing with the chorus, or just listening. We will give you a warm welcome and loan you a Guest Book of sheet music so you can start ringing those great barbershop chords right away. No previous experience with a singing group is necessary.
If you find you enjoy the fun and camaraderie, we will invite you to join the chorus. There are three simple requirements for membership: (1) fill out a membership application; (2) meet with a member of our Music Team for a brief audition that includes a vocal range check to see whether you are best suited for tenor, lead, baritone or bass; and (3) pay your first year's dues.

This dues payment makes you a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, as well as of the Montgomery County Chapter. It also pays for a subscription to the Society magazine, The Harmonizer, which is filled with great information about our hobby. Along with your membership, you will receive copies of our current repertoire of songs. Soon afterwards you will be fitted for your uniform so that, when you are ready, you can join us for shows and our community service performances.

We’ll give you plenty of help learning barbershop music. You will have a “buddy” to make sure you have a pleasant passage into our tuneful world. Weekly meetings are devoted primarily to rehearsing songs, and section leaders will offer individual help if you need it. The Chapter also provides learning CD's (recordings of the songs with your part predominant) that you can use to practice on your own between meetings.

Barbershop is a wonderful hobby for men with an ear for great old music. Come meet us. Bring a friend. Bring your dad or your son. We will open a new magical, musical world for you. We’re easy to find; see the directions page.
