The Mason Dixon Barbershop Chorus Offers Singing Valentines as a Fundraiser

The Hagerstown Barbershop Chorus was formed over fifty years ago for men who wanted to sing and preserve four-part barbershop harmony - truly an American original and treasure. The Hagerstown chapter is one of over eight hundred chapters in the country and abroad with a total membership in excess of thirty-five thousand men making it the world's largest singing society. The chorus sings mainly songs of the early nineteen hundreds with some contemporary, comedy, and gospel songs. In all cases, singing is done in the barbershop style, lead, tenor, base, and baritone. The Mason Dixon Barbershop Chorus has sung extensively in the tri-state area and has turned the clock back for many of its audiences to a much more gentle time in our history.
On Valentine's Day the chorus forms into quartets to sing Valentines as a fundraiser to help with its charitable efforts. This year quartets will be available from 9am-8pm Wednesday, February 13 and Thursday, February 14 to sing in Washington and Franklin counties. For $40.00 a quartet will provide two love songs, a card from the sender, a small gift, and a photo of the recipient with the quartet. Ordering deadline is Monday, February 11. Order early as times are limited.
