Come Sing With Us

We meet every Tuesday from 7:00 pm to 9:15 pm at the Hillsdale Perennial Park Senior Center located at 320 W. Bacon Street in Hillsdale, Michigan. For directions see the map below or click here.

We sing barbershop music, an original American art form, which is four-part vocal music sung without any instrumental accompaniment. What makes barbershop unique is the "close harmony", meaning that the notes sung by the four parts, unlike traditional choral music, are placed very close together. The four voice parts are

  • Lead (the melody),
  • Tenor (above the melody),
  • Baritone (about the same range as the lead, but a harmony part), and
  • Bass (below the melody).

Each week we produce a News and Agenda document (see esamples at the right), so chorus members know what songs to prepare for prior to rehearsal. We provide audio learning tracks for most songs, and for all four parts. You can download these learnig tracks on your favorite device, and listen to them to help you learn a song.

For more information, send us an email.
