Do you love and live to sing? Want to upgrade to a Cappella? Under the Direction of David A. Hochron, we sing many different genres – show tunes, Motown, Doo-Wop, Crooner, ‘classic’. . . – Barbershop style!

We are the Fault Line Chorus, San Mateo Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. We also set time aside to sing in quartets. BHS used to be an all male organization but now we welcome all who love to sing – or want to try! We don’t audition and give you an opportunity to try it out without pressure or intimidation. 

Feel free to call (650-242-5996), email ( or

Love to Sing?

Do you love and live to sing? Tired of it only being in the shower or car? Then we’re your answer. We are always looking for people – young and old, any gender – who love to sing – tenors, leads, baritones, and basses. You’ll be singing with us in no time!

We practice on Tuesday evenings from 7:15 to 9:45 – we warm up for the first 15 minutes, then 90 minutes of group rehearsal, then 30-45 minutes of quarteting.

All that rehearsal pays off for a number of performances throughout the year; spring, summer, fall and the holidays. We have our really big show every October – a variety show with Fault Line as the main act, but several other acts to add a great deal of fun!

4 Reasons You Should Join The Fault Line A Cappella Chorus


1. It’s easy!

You don’t need to be a trained musician or professional singer to sing barbershop, because we sing the simple, good old songs of yesteryear. Songs about moon and June, mother and the person next door — songs you just can’t help but harmonize along with. Our top-notch music team makes learning your part a snap — and fun!

2. It’s fun!

Whether you’re singing in our show chorus, in a quartet, or just singing some tags with friends, you’ll find you’re always happy while you’re singing. The friendship and fellowship of voices raised together in harmony will wash away your cares and re-energize you.

3. You can do it!

Barbershop singers come from all walks of life, with varying levels of ability and training. If you can sing “Happy Birthday,” we can teach you to sing barbershop harmony.

4. Healthy Hobby

Barbershop singing is cheaper than bowling, less stressful than golf, and more fun than you can imagine. Do yourself a favor: try it just once. We know you’ll be hooked.
