Fortuity and Nicky Salt are combining forces to share their knowledge and experience of singing as a barbershop quartet for this one-day, online education event.

It’s free and everyone is welcome to attend the sessions whether you’re a seasoned quartet singer or just a wanna-be quartetter – there’s always something to learn. You can watch it live on our YouTube channel using any device. The sessions will also be available to watch on-demand if you miss it.
