WESTBURY, NY -- The Nassau Mid-Island Chapter of The Barbershop Harmony Society (also known as the Long Island Harmonizers chorus) is currently using a musical question to encourage men, young and old, to join its roster and enjoy the fun of barbershop-style singing.
"What's missing here?" asks a new campaign picturing barbershop singers and a musical scale with notes identified as do, re, fa, sol, la, ti and do. If you said "mi," you can do something about it, it says, by accepting an invitation to experience the pleasures of four-part harmony with the largest Barbershop Harmony Society Chapter on Long Island. The Society itself boasts some 30,000 members in the U.S. and Canada with affiliates around the globe.
The membership campaign will be supported by the placement of flyers in prominent community locations, special material on the Chapter's website and additional publicity. Weekly practice time by the all-male a cappella group continues during the summer months with new music added as part of its 2011 repertoire.
The Long Island Harmonizers chorus rehearses Tuesday evenings at Winthrop Hall, Church of the Advent, 555 Advent Street, in Westbury from 8 until 10:30 pm. During the months of July, August and early September its rehearsal hall moves to Calvary Protestant Church (2801 Park Avenue) in Baldwin.
