The singing art called "Woodshedding" (spontaneous
harmonizing-by-ear), is the musical foundation of our international
Barbershop Quartet Society. For members, potential members and our
non-singing supporters, AHSOW's goal is to conduct as many Woodshedding
demonstrations, workshops and "ear-singing" opportunities as possible.|
Regular Education Activities
One of the most effective venues for such outreach activities is via AHSOW Rooms with facilities provided by the Society, each District, Division or Sponsoring Chapter, these special rooms are staffed by skilled AHSOW members who have been selected and trained by their District Educator and Certifier (DEC). Room activities are posted in the calendar of each convention or activity and are carefully scheduled not to conflict with contests and shows. A calendar of events is also posted on the door of each room and reminder announcements are made from the podium. Whether you are a seasoned Woodshedder, a prospective Barbershopper or a non-singing fan of great Barbershop Harmony, the AHSOW Room has something for you. Plan to visit us... and, bring some friends.
