Who Can Join?

We invite any man who likes singing and harmonizing, and who enjoys sharing the fellowship of other good-natured men. Men from all walks of life and between the ages of 13 and 90 are currently part of our group. You don't have to know how to read music; you just have to love to sing. Guests are always welcome, so why not pay us a visit.
How Can You Join?

We ask prospective members to visit us at least three times before applying for membership in the chapter. You will be placed in the proper voice section and given all the help you need to learn your part. An application can be obtained from the Chapter Development Vice President or Chapter Secretary. For more information please call Jim Bishop, President, 330-825-4584
