"Motto of our 22,000-member Barbershop Harmony Society is ‘Keep the Whole World Singing,’ notes Hal Verity, 2014 Show Chairman,” and the outstanding hits from movie musicals have unquestionably done their part to foster that throughout the years. We will apply our special barbershop art form in singing some of those great melodies.”

Those interested in joining the local Nassau Mid-Island Chapter are welcome to come and listen and, if they wish, apply for membership with a simple audition.
