Marin Barbershop Chorus Sings in Sweet Harmony

Barbershop Quartet

The music scene in Marin goes beyond rock bands. Take the Marin Barbershop Chorus. Founded in 1954, the a cappella group is the longest-performing male chorus in the county, one of only 12 in Marin.

Approximately 30 singers rehearse in San Anselmo throughout the year, but the all-male group is always looking for new members. For the uninitiated: barbershop singing is in four-part harmony.

Upcoming concerts include “Sweet Dreamz,” a selection of popular songs performed in the group’s signature style, on November 24 at the Showcase Theater in San Rafael.

Kasia Pawlowska loves words. A native of Poland, Kasia moved to the States when she was seven. The San Francisco State University creative writing graduate went on to write for publications like the San Francisco Bay Guardian and KQED Arts among others prior to joining the Marin Magazine staff. Topics Kasia has covered include travel, trends, mushroom hunting, an award-winning series on social media addiction and loads of other random things. When she’s not busy blogging or researching and writing articles, she’s either at home writing postcards and reading or going to shows. Recently, Kasia has been trying to branch out and diversify, ie: use different emojis. Her quest for the perfect chip is never-ending.
