Who Are We? We are a group of men who enjoy singing. Singing is our hobby. Our chorus was organized in 2003 with initial interest shown by about 50 men. We have since grown to about 140 members. The group was fortunate enough to find a first class director...Scott Werner.
We joined The Barbershop Harmony Society (the international barbershop singing organization) and chose the name, "Heart of Florida" Barbershop chorus. We are part of the Sunshine District.
Our chorus represents every occupation imaginable and a wide age range, but our focus is singing and making friends with some of the finest people in the world.
If the thrill of being part of hearing a chord "ring" moves you, then you are in the right place. We invite you to join our hobby and enjoy the fellowship of other men with mutual interests.
We meet every Thursday evening from 6:00 until 9 PM with practice starting at 6:30 PM at the North Lake Presbyterian Church in Lady Lake, Florida. Our rehearsals are open to all interested men and visitors are welcome.
