The joy of singing with others

 Join us in our mission to:

  • Bring more singing to your local community via our Outreach programs

  • Attend our yearly International conventions and join thousands of other like-minded singers

  • Learn how to arrange a barbershop song

  • Assist with the international expansion of barbershop singing

As time goes by, fewer people experience the joy of singing with others. We’re working to change that. Since 1938, the Barbershop Harmony Society’s motto and mission has been “Keep the Whole World Singing.”

Singing has changed our own lives. It’s not only fun, but is unique in its ability to relieve stress and keep us emotionally grounded. Singing connects us to our fellow singers and our communities. As a result, we’re better spouses and parents. And our children have gained multi-generational role models and a big leg up in life.

How is barbershop changing lives?


Andrew’s story is just one of many.

Andrew Lujan was a shy and reserved kid who didn’t know who he was or who he wanted to be. When singing became a part of his life and barbershoppers reached into his life, it changed forever.

Follow this journey of self discovery and how donors from Harmony Foundation created an opportunity for one young man to reach his potential, and discover who he is.

Our goal is to build a better world through singing.

If this is your goal, we want you on our team. Join us as we work with community leaders, music educators, and others to help all ages and communities live better lives through song.

The Barbershop Harmony Society has already formed lasting relationships with music educators through our efforts in working with the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA).
