A Truly American Art Form
Barbershop harmony is music.
It's music in a very pure form created with nothing but human voices coming together to create a rich and satisfying texture that is pleasing to the ears and invigorating to the soul.
Barbershop harmony is fraternity.
Men from all over the world and from all walks of life and all ages can come together and share in this truly American art form and find common ground through self expression in song.
Barbershop harmony is a way of life.
Perfecting this musical art form takes commitment. When done well, our music reaches audiences on a personal level. You will experience personal growth, build self-confidence and create lasting memories as you work with others to perform for a variety of audiences, from large concerts to intimate Singing Valentines.
The Old Line Statesmen Barbershop Chorus embodies all of the above.
Come on out for a visit and see if this is something you would enjoy. If you like to sing and enjoy good camaraderie, we think you will have a great time.
We have been around for awhile. We chartered in 1983. Take a look at our Vision and Mission statements to see what we believe our role is locally. Also, read the Barbershop Harmony Society Code of Ethics that guides us as members of the Society. (The Code is printed on the back of our membership cards.)
