    Seneca Land is one of seventeen districts of the Barbershop Harmony Society, formally known as the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America, Inc. (SPEBSQSA, Inc.) The Society started in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1938 O. C. Cash and Rupert Hall, met by chance at the Hotel Muehlebach, found two other singers to comprise a quartet, and the rest is history.

    Seneca Land District, encompassing Upstate NY and NW PA, is composed of 33 chapters and approximately 50 registered quartets that perform in our district as well as throughout this country and around the world.   

    Although one of the smallest districts in the society,  Seneca Land has produced an International Champion Quartet, the Buffalo Bills, and five Society Presidents, Phil Embury, S. Wayne Foor, James Steedman, Plummer F. Collins, and Rob Hopkins.
