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.
