This General Information section provides you with a description of our music program, and information on how to join. It concludes with a few samples of timeless barbershop music. The Suncoast Statesmen
is a male chorus that swells to forty plus members during our concert season. Although we function on an annual basis, we do experience a significant drop off in attendance during the summer months as many members return to other homes throughout the United States and Canada. This has resulted in us developing a tripartite music program that is explained more thoroughly in this section. It also necessitates some rehearsal modifications. While all rehearsals are held on Tuesdays at the Burnt Store Presbyterian Church
, rehearsal times change during the year. We open our season in early September, with rehearsals held every Tuesday at 2:00PM during September and October. From November through April, we switch to Tuesday evening rehearsals beginning at 7:00PM. During May and June, we revert to the 2:00PM Tuesday afternoon rehearsal format before taking a two month break during July and August. Directions to the church can be found on the Home Page
or at the bottom of this section. We encourage you to pay us a visit; we would love to have you as our guest!
