Start a Quartet

While many barbershoppers enjoy singing in a chapter or chorus, the Barbershop Harmony Society originated as a quartet organization, with a governing purpose “to perpetuate the old American institution: the barbershop quartet.” For quartet singers, there‘s nothing like the experience of ringing those barbershop chords!
