We are the Ganaraska Chordsmen Chorus, 
AKA "The Ganaraskals!"

Who?
Men of all ages from Port Hope, Cobourg, Northumberland County and beyond.
What?
A Barbershop Harmony Society chorus singing from memory and without accompaniment (a cappella).
Where?
Meeting at St. John's Parish Hall, 33 Pine St N, Port Hope, ON L1A 3G5
During the pandemic, we continue to meet on Zoom and, as of 2021, we are simultaneously making harmony together live online on Jamulus.
When?
Most Tuesdays, 7PM-9:30PM, year-round. 7PM-8:45PM on Zoom and Jamulus with check-in/out 15 minutes on each side.
Why?
We love to sing and entertain.
How?
Led by an inspiring chorus director, we learn words and music with the aid of take-home sheet music and audio recordings. No previous music training is necessary, as long as you can carry a tune, in tune.

Mission
The Barbershop Harmony Society brings men together in harmony and fellowship to enrich lives through singing.
Vision
To be the premier membership organization for men who love to sing.

 Music Directors

Fred Mooij

Director - Fred Mooij

Getting Fred to write a bio is akin to pulling hen's teeth. Suffice to say that this self-described "arm-waver" is passionate about singing barbershop harmony and has done so for decades. He was a member of our predecessor Pine Ridge Chorus and sang tenor with Ontario District 1994 Novice Quartet Champions "Ganaraska Rascals".
