The North Star Chorus is a group of men who gather weekly to experience the joy of singing an original American artform and, through performances, seek to enrich the lives of people in our community with a cappella singing.
We love to entertain by putting on musical events each year for the community, our friends, and families, including free outdoor performances to the public each June, July and August at the Como Lake Pavilion in St. Paul. Our fall show in October and holiday show in December are the highlights of the year. We also send Singing Valentines each Valentine's Day and compete each year in regional contests. Read more...
Do you sing? Join us! Come spend time with a great bunch of guys, learn some amazing, classic songs, and get a chance to perform and strut your stuff!
Men of all ages are welcome to participate in any North Star Chorus rehearsal, Tuesdays at 7pm, at Elmwood Church in St. Anthony, MN. See the Rehearsal Information page for driving directions and a map.

Barbershop: Not just for "old guys."
Nope! Not on your life! Sure, some of us are a bit "age challenged", but while some may have found the hobby somewhat later in life, others have grown up in the barbershop family, participating for 30, 40, and even 50+ years! You don't get 50 years in unless you start young or live a really long time. Technically, there's no age requirements on either end of the spectrum.
