Lynn Brown's record of involvement in barbershop singing goes back almost 50 years.
Born and raised on a dairy farm, Brown studied civil engineering at Queen's University and then did post graduate studies to become a professional Ontario Land Surveyor, now based at Port Hope.
While at Kingston, he joined the chorus there in 1969 and later transferred his membership to Oshawa. He sang in two quartets that competed at the Ontario District level and did extensive training in singing and voice development. In recent years, he took special training in chorus directing and barbershop musical theory studies, going on to direct the Peterborough Aces chorus, the Durham Shores Sweet Adeline Chorus (women's branch of the barbershop society) and specializing in coaching quartets. He recalls with fondness a tour of England with the Tri-City Chorus in 1988.
