Back in 1995, four Gaylord area men walked out on the stage of the "Music Man", sang their first chord and Barbershop Harmony was born in Gaylord. The show became the nucleus of the Gaylord Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, or the "Harmonie Meisters" when 30 men from the audience said "me too." The popularity of the group is evident by the large number of events they have been asked to perform in. This group of guys has sung in many Gaylord Alpenfests, Lewiston Timberfest, Lewiston Historical Picnic, American Cancer Society functions, the Mackinaw City Music Festival, the Gladwin Concert in the Park series, West Branch's Art Fair and many senior citizens and church functions, and many other noteworthy events.
Traveling from eight counties, (Roscommon, Crawford, Otsego, Oscoda, Montmorency, Cheboygan, Charlevoix and Emmet) they are dedicated to singing the true American art form of four part, accapella music called Barbershop Harmony. Ranging in age from 17 years to 93 years, the group is considered a service organization for their giving of harmony and music in the local communities.
