The Palm Harbor Crystal-Aires is a non-profit men's chorus that sings four-part
barbershop harmony. We are just one of 800 chapters that are part of the Barbershop Harmony Society, an international organization of 30,000 male singers located throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.
The chorus performs for retirement communities, civic clubs, businesses and other special events in the community. We are available for hire and will provide a program of barbershop style entertainment at any location within 15 miles of Palm Harbor.
In February, we also offer Singing Valentines delivered by our chapter quartets.
For a nominal cost, a quartet will visit private residences, nursing homes, hospitals, offices, etc. A special venue or specific time may be requested at additional cost.
Men who like to sing and are interested in learning more about barbershop singing are cordially invited to visit us.
We meet each Monday evening at 6:30 p.m. at The Centre of Palm Harbor. The Centre is located just North of Nebraska on 16th Street. For more information, call our Chapter President Jim Eustice at (727) 255-3777. If needed, Jim can also arrange transportation with a fellow member.
Our members come from all walks of life and share a common love for our hobby. It is not necesssary to be an experienced singer! Many of our members do not read music. If you can hold a tune, just learn and sing your own part. We learn our songs three different ways: by rote, by reading the music, and from CDs. Our Music Director, Jack Rickert, is widely experienced in barbershop singing and does an excellent job of directing our chorus.
Our rehearsals and performances are a time for all of our members to enjoy good fellowship, good singing, and good fun for all. Come visit us! Better yet, come and join our chapter chorus.
You Are Welcome!
