We Would Love to Sing for You
The Heart of Florida is 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. The group was fortunate to find a gold-medal barbershopper and director...Scott Werner.. to lead them.
The Heart of Florida Chorus is a sanctioned Chapter within the Florida Sunshine District of the Barbershop Harmony Society (the international barbershop singing organization formerly known as the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America)
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 hearing a chord “ring” moves you, or your wife elbows you to stop you singing along at a concert or your shower is your best practice venue, you are in the right place. We invite you to join our passion 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.
