Today, more than ever, the positive experience so many of us have with our Barbershop chapters needs to be shared in a much broader manner. Our chapters provide a safe and welcoming environment for all people who love music, and the extended family feeling that coming together to share that love of music brings.
Your thoughtful gift will help prepare our chapters to bring that opportunity more broadly into their communities by sponsoring youth organizations, community performances and bringing high caliber performers to their area to encourage many people to join in the fun, as soon as the pandemic subsides.
We appreciate your continued support and love of barbershop harmony.
The Land O’ Lakes District strives to develop a vibrant singing community through a close harmony style of a cappella known as Barbershop. There is a long-standing tradition of barbershop that dates as far back as in the 1800’s. Barbershop often has been stereotyped as “old” and “dated” music, however, this style of music is undergoing a huge resurgence movement globally where composers, arrangers, choral programs and recording artists around the world are joined together in breathing new life into the style.
The Land O’ Lakes District, in partnership with the Barbershop Harmony Society strives to provide choral directors, singing instructors and youth under the age of 25 with an enriching experience of “Everyone in Harmony”.
