One of the main purposes of the Northland Barbershop Chorusis to get out and sing for our community. We sing at our annual show, community events, in churches, senior's homes and at all sorts of charitable activities and fundraisers. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. Members often report that they learn something new at each rehearsal. The atmosphere is light but we always try to strike a balance between fun and the hard work that goes into improving our craft each week.
