If you are reading this message, you are
reflecting an interest in "barbershop"
singing with a degree of familiarity through
personal participation, an awareness after
hearing this distinctive type of music or
because you wish to learn what barbershopping is all about. Whatever the
reason, the Nassau Mid-Island Chapter of the
Barbershop Harmony Society (Long Island's
largest chapter) is pleased that you have
taken a moment to be here.
We invite you to take a look at our website links for details concerning our organization, its history, current activities, rehearsals and most importantly, how to contact us for additional information.
As a performer or listener you will find a number of indisputable rewards regarding barbershopping. Unashamed pleasure -- through barbershop chords that thrill (we have seen the smiles of our members, those on the faces of other choruses/quartets, and the smiles of audiences everywhere). You'll experience a feeling of nostalgia -- for old songs (and maybe not-so-old). Preservation -- of a style particularly and only barbershop. Camaraderie -- another given. And -- excellence. It is truly awesome how our championship-caliber performers have honed their craft.
We urge you to follow the international Barbershop Harmony Society's mandate to "Keep America Singing." Come, lend your support (and make your voice heard) insofar as our society and chapter.
We look forward to hearing from you.
