Join the Barbershop Chorus

Jerry Gustafson

Remember those songs you used to sing as a young man? Your local SaddleBrooke Barbershop Chorus has kept the barbershop tradition going since 1998. Barbershop harmony is a style of unaccompanied lyrics and easily singable melodies. In barbershop, the melody is usually sung by the lead with the tenor harmonizing above the melody. The bass sings the lowest notes and the baritone completes the chord.

The SB Barbershop Chorus is a chapter of the International Barbershop Harmony Society which has about 20,000 members and 700 chapters. The chorus would love to have men who like singing try us out. We have a nationally known director. We also maintain a computer program to help you learn your specific part and improve your singing skills. We enjoy performing for various groups who desire entertainment. We sing for some assisted living/nursing home facilities, as well as performing a concert at DesertView Theatre each December.

Our chorus meets every Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. in the Agate Room of SaddleBrooke TWO Arts and Crafts Center, 38725 S. MountainView Blvd. Join us! You’ll have a ball!

This years’ concert is on Dec. 13 at the DesertView Theatre. As part of our show we are bringing in a wonderful singing group, The Scottsdale Chorus. They are six-time national Sweet Adelines champions – the women’s barbershop organization with about 22,000 members in 600 chapters. The Scottsdale Chorus is the best women’s chorus in the country! Each chorus will sing some of your Christmas favorites as well as a variety of fun and recognizable songs. Then we will join together for some special songs.
