Barbershop singers meets jazz pianist for show

Musical Mosaics is proud to present the Forbidden Barbershop Singers, together with jazz pianist Dave Klinger on March 18, at St. John the Divine Anglican Church, 579 5th Street, Courtenay.

The concert fun begins at 3 p.m. Door entry is a suggested minimum donation of $10. Partial funds will be donated to prostate cancer fundraiser.

Barbershop music has been around since the 1870’s in the southern states of America. These types of harmonies came to fruition on streets, curbsides – and yes – barbershops, where men were gathered together, waiting their turn in the barber chair. The genre included songs and revivalist hymns.

The Forbidden Barbershop Singers began as a quartet of singers but now have added a talented fifth singer to the group. Hence, the newly minted name of Forbidden Barbershop Singers. Their emphasis is on supporting the Canadian Prostate Cancer Society.

Dave Klinger has a masters degree in piano performance and a vast history of musical accomplishments. Since retiring he has pursued his music career on various levels, performing for private events as well as public concerts and shows. He is welcomed to the keyboard section of our Musical Mosaics concert. Attendees can expect another eclectic choice of pieces, skillfully played, all for our listening pleasure.
