It is the purpose of SPEBSQSA, Inc., to preserve and encourage that four part, a cappella, close harmony style of music known as Barbershop! To this end, the mission of the Norfolk, Virginia Chapter is to promote public performance of four part, male, a cappella, harmony in the American Barbershop style by:
- Striving to serve the musical needs of all current and potential members by providing and actively supporting a wide variety of barbershopping opportunities which may include organized quartetting, pick-up quartetting, chorus singing, and group or "gang" singing;
- Sharing our love of Barbershop Harmony in this community, thereby perpetuating the music for the future;
- Promoting vocal music education and appreciation, most particularly in schools and in our community;
- Striving for excellence in all performances and competitions.
In so doing, we shall conduct ourselves in a spirit of fellowship and harmony, whereby friendship and chapter growth is encouraged.
