In September 2004 I responded to a leaflet advertising a free singing course for men. I didn’t know it was going to change my life! It turned out to be the first ‘Learn to Sing’ course the Kentones had mounted. I thoroughly enjoyed the introduction it gave me to close harmony, a capella singing, but also the amazingly warm welcome I was given by existing members of the Club, many of whom have now become close friends. The three elements of Singing, Friendship and Charity Support which typify the world of Barbershop make this hobby truly worthwhile and satisfying.
