Thinking of joining?
If you are interested in joining Spinnaker, the first thing to say is GOOD CHOICE! Getting involved in barbershop is a decision we have never known anyone to regret.
If you are aged 14 or above, whether you are an experienced singer or not, a capable musician or not, we would love to meet you. Our contact page gives you details of where we are and how to contact us. If you just want to turn up on Wednesday night, that’s just fine, too! You can sit and listen or join in and take part in the evening – whatever you feel most comfortable doing.
1. Express your interest
3. Continue attending rehearsals
On a subsequent visit, our Deputy Musical Director, Cathy Ball will establish your vocal range via means of a “voice test”. This will determine which voice section you will be best suited to: Tenor, Lead, Baritone or Bass. This “voice test” usually entails singing a simple song like ‘Happy Birthday’. You will then be emailed some sheet music and teach tracks to start the journey towards your audition. Our Section Leaders can organise practice auditions with others so you know what to expect for the real thing when you’re ready.
