Barbershop Chorus To Host ‘Hooked On Harmony!’

At 3 p.m. on Sun., Nov. 6, the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts at Drew University in Madison, plans to ring with the exciting sound of four-part barbershop harmony.

‘Hooked On Harmony!’ will feature the Morris Music Men, Morris County’s premiere barbershop chorus. Under the dynamic direction of Drew graduate Nate Barrett, the chorus has nearly doubled in size over the past year and has added a number of exciting new tunes to its already audience-pleasing repertoire.

Joining the Morris Music Men will be two talented teen singing groups from West Morris Mendham High School. The young ladies in the Treble Makers and the young men in Unaccompanied Minors are living proof that the appeal of barbershop harmony spans generations.  Also appearing will be Napoleon & The Bonaparts and popular North Jersey seniors quartet The Four Old Parts.

Tickets are $20; $17 for seniors 62+and students, and are available in advance or at the door. Discounts are available for groups of ten or more. For tickets and more information about the show and chorus, call 973-267-7522 or visit the chapter’s website at Lakeland Bank is a proud sponsor of ‘Hooked On Harmony!’

The Morris Music Men include men of all ages from across North Jersey. They meet at 7:30 p.m. each Tuesday at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Chatham, to sing and socialize. New singers are always welcome.

The Morris County chorus is one of 750 chapters of the international 25,000-member Barbershop Harmony Society.

In addition to presenting annual shows, and delivering Singing Valentines each February, The Morris Music Men perform at numerous community festivals and summer concert series.
