Clipper City Chordsmen Barbershop Chorus

The Clipper City Chordsmen Chorus is an a cappella men’s chorus whose mission is to “preserve and encourage” the Barber Shop style of music.

The Manitowoc County Wisconsin Chapter is one of 810 Chapters in the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS), formerly known as the “Society  for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America” (SPEBSQSA). Founded in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1938, today the society has Chapters in the United States, Canada, England, Australia, China, South Africa, Germany, Brazil, New Zealand, Sweden, and others. The Manitowoc Chapter was chartered in 1945 and has been very active in the community ever since.
Chordsmen membership currently numbers 40 men, 30 of whom sing regularly with the chorus. The Manitowoc Chapter, home of the world-famous International Champions Schmitt Bros. quartet, features an outstanding chorus and several talented and entertaining quartets. Click here for more information on our quartets.

The Clipper City Chordsmen encourage any male, 12 to 100 years of age, who likes to sing and has some semblance of an “ear” and an ability to match a tone, to visit them at their rehearsal facility (click here for directions) any Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. as a walk-in or as a guest of a member.

After three visits, the membership chairman and music director will perform a brief voice-placement test, the secretary will respond to your interest in joining with the necessary paperwork, and dues arrangements will be made. The Executive Board officially accepts you as a member-and then your fun begins!
