Interested in joining the Newyorkers?

Who Can Join? 
Any man with an interest in the following:
 
If you want to develop as a singer...
You'll find lots of opportunities to learn more about your voice and how to use it, through weekly meetings, workshops, schools and Barbershop Harmony Society instructional materials.

If you're looking for a great way to relax with other guys...
You'll find loads of social activities, weekly afterglows, conventions and performances.

If you like to stretch your abilities...
You'll enjoy taking part in contests, presenting shows, and polishing your skills to their ultimate potential.

If you like to be a leader...
You'll find opportunities as a chapter leader, music director, teacher, or coach. You can find the satisfaction of helping others develop in their hobby.

We invite anybody interested in the issues and topics we focus our efforts on to join. Members must be able to dedicate enough time to participate and make a difference in the organization.

Benefits of Joining

There are several benefits to becoming a member of our organization. Our members are close friends and we have a great time when we get together. Of course we also have a common interest, and we hope to further our cause.

How Can You Join?

  • We need to meet you!!
  • The Newyorkers meet every Wednesday at Crown Heights Clubhouse Inc., 34 Nassau Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601 at 7:30 PM.
  • Give one of us a call or send an email (see contacts below) and we can probably arrange a ride.
  • One of our music team will test your voice for range. DON'T WORRY, this isn't an audition. We just want to make sure we don't put a Bass in with the Tenors!! We also realize that men can be shy about their voices so this placement may change as we get to know you.
  • Attend at least three chapter meetings.
  • Understand the requirements of Newyorker membership including rehearsals performances competition.
  • Complete the Membership application and pay required membership dues.
