Board of Directors



We are the Venice Gondoliers, the local chapter of SPEBSQSA International, ( now known as the Barbershop Harmony Society). We meet each Monday night at the Lakeside Lutheran Meyer Hall, 2401 Tamiami Trail, So Venice, FL.

We sing for fun and fellowship and share our music with Civic Clubs, Schools, Retirement Centers and a variety of Community groups. We dress up in our best Barbershop finery for our Annual show, held each March, where you might find us performing Broadway show songs, traditional Barbershop tunes, sacred hymns or rousing patriotic anthems.

We are a nonprofit organization which donates performance proceeds to local School music programs, local Charities, Scholarships and Cultural groups. There are more than thirty of us who sing with the Venice Gondoliers.

If you like to sing and if you would like to share in the fun and excitement of barbershop harmony, then why not visit one of our rehearsals? All you need to be a Venice Gondolier, is an interest in singing and harmony. Our music programs teach you basic music reading skills and vocal techniques.

It is not necessary that you "read music" to sing with us. We teach the four parts (lead, bass, baritone, and tenor) using sheet music, learning tapes and actual singing with the chorus and/or a quartet.
