we invite you to try out to become an official member of the group.
Once you've decided to audition, we keep it short and sweet.
- Pick a song you feel comfortable with - if you're unsure we can help you choose.
You don't need to memorize, just learn your part confidently. Recordings are even
available to help you with this.
- When you're ready, you'll sing privately with some our Music Committee - this is the Director,
the Assistant Director and a few others. Often we do it just before or after rehearsal.
- You'll sing your song twice. First, with four other guys
one singer doubling your part. The second time you'll sing independently in a quartet.
- The Music Committee evaluates your performance.
We don't look for perfection, just the ability to sing pleasantly and expressively in tune.
You'll get feedback in just a few minutes.
- When you pass the audition, you'll get a Barbershop Harmony Society application,
The Music Committee recommends you to the chorus board, who approves your membership.
- In the event you don't pass the audition, we'll
help you understand what aspects of your performance were not strong enough,
and, more importantly, how to continue improving.

plaza. Find us at the Southwest corner of Hwy 46 and County Road I in Balsam Lake.
We meet in the Conference Room just off the main lobby. To the left as you enter.
Please note: This is not the large gray complex to the northeast of the Highway. That's the Government Center. The rehearsal facility is diagonally across the intersection.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
