Barbershop harmony is “a truly American art-form. It’s music in a very pure form created by nothing but human voices coming together to create a rich and satisfying texture that is pleasing to the ears and invigorating to the soul. Whether you’re an experienced or brand new musician, barbershop levels the playing field and allows you to find your voice and be a part of creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts.”
The Paradise Coastmen Barbershop Chorus was named one of four organizations to receive the coveted 2007 STARS IN THE ARTS award presented by the United Arts Council of Collier County honoring “exceptional leaders in the arts for their outstanding contributions to our cultural community”.
We welcome all men of good character to come visit with us any Thursday evening from 7 – 10 p.m. We rehearse in the fellowship hall of Our Savior Lutheran Church, 1955 Curling Avenue (behind Sam’s Club) Naples, FL 34109.
If you like what you hear and want to learn more about us and our great hobby, we will invite you to come again and begin an orientation that includes a voice placement to determine your vocal range.
The ability to read music is not required, only a willingness to learn the craft of singing barbershop and a desire to sing well.
