All our rehearsals are open to the public and we welcome any guests who wish to attend. We normally
meet every Tuesday night at the Village Christian Church. The church is located at 3113 Primrose
Drive, one block east of Hancock and two blocks north of Fillmore. ( map)) Meetings start at 7:00 P.M.
and end at 9:30 P.M. with the first 1/2 hour is usually spent warming up our voices, singing matching
cords and working on barbershop harmony craft. If we are working on a show we take to the risers and
start singing songs we are going to perform while the director corrects our mistakes. If there is new
music we split up to work on our parts (tenor, lead, baritone, bass). This is followed by getting back together to sing the song(s) on the risers as a full chorus.
By now it time for a break with a snack and announcements and then we are back to work, usually on
the risers, until quiting time. The last part of the
evening often includes time for a chapter quartet to
sing, learning a tag and/or doing a tag in sing-along.
All in all it is a fun filled evening with lots of singing
and good music.
All guests are welcome to just come and listen or
join in with the singing. As we are an international
society, we often have fellow barbershop members
from out of town stay late or during break join us in
singing "polecats. (Polecats are a group of 10 to 12
songs that every barbershopper world wide knows
and can sing with any other quartet in the society.
For example: Sweet Adeline).
Because our Director has taken a national job with the society he can not always meet with us on
Tuesday so it is temporarily a good idea to call 719-635 3651 to make sure of the meeting night
