The Gold Standard Barbershop Chorus is the Santa Cruz Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (SPEBSQSA). Founded in 1989, the chorus is dedicated to preserving and encouraging a cappella four-part harmony and "keeping the whole world singing." Most chapters are "male only," but the Santa Cruz chapter has female "auxiliary singers." The ratio is explained on the chorus web site, www.scbarbershop.org. All music is still sung in the men's range, from arrangements written for men.
We meet every Wednesday evening. For more information, check out the chorus website www.scbarbershop.org.
