Barbershop quartet singing is an original American musical art form. Though the roots of four-part harmony go back more than a century, it thrives today through the efforts of the Barbershop Harmony Society, founded in 1938, and has grown into the world's largest all-male singing organization, with more than 30,000 singers in more than 800 chapters in the United States and Canada. We'd love to meet you and introduce you to our hobby!
The Lakelanders invite all men who enjoy singing to come and join our chorus. There's no audition to pass, no previous experience needed. All you need is a love of singing. Music reading skills are always helpful, but not essential. If you have a good ear, can match pitch, and sing a musical phrase after hearing it a few times, you'll do just fine! The four voice parts range from very low to very high and special attention will be given to matching you with a voice part that is comfortable.
Come sing with us! We want to meet you!

The Lakelanders enjoy performing for the community throughout the Auburn area. Special events, service clubs, seasonal activities, and open-mic night at the Auburn Public Theatre are among our regular appearances. Whenever possible we sing from memory, but if a singer needs to rely on sheet music, that's OK. In addition to barbershop, the Lakelanders enjoy other styles of music, including du-wop, pop, folk, jazz, gospel, and even songs from famous movies!
