What To Expect At Your First Rehearsal

We'll have guest books available when you visit so you can hit the ground running. We'll also pair you up with a singing buddy that shares your voice part so they can help you learn the music and answer any questions you may have. In barbershop, voice parts are a little different from the classical SATB. A description of the voice parts and their ranges are shown below. If you don't know your range, arrive 10 minutes early and we'll help you find it!

Voice Parts:

We sing acapella music in four parts. Lead and bass are recommended for beginners, but pick whatever part you feel most comfortable singing!
