Lake Geneva Country Gentlemen
Welcome to the Lake Geneva Country Gentlemen Barbershop Chorus site. We welcome you to participate with us in our hobby by joining us to sing or attend one of our events.
We are a group of men from South Eastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, from all vocations, that enjoy singing. If you like to sing, we invite you to join us. The only thing that is required is that you be able to carry a tune and be willing to learn. We can teach you the rest.
We sing music in the barbershop style.
Barbershop harmony is music, A Truly American Art form.
It’s music in a very pure form created with nothing but human voices coming together to create a rich and satisfying texture that is pleasing to the ears and invigorating to the soul. Barbershop allows you to find your voice and be a part of creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts.
The four parts are: Lead (usually the melody), Tenor (harmony above the melody), Baritone(harmony just below the melody) and Bass (the rich bottom harmony).
