Making the music that's making a difference
Founded in 1938, the Barbershop Harmony Society preserves and extends the reach of a uniquely American close harmony musical art form whose roots lie in African-American improvisation and European harmony traditions. Through active programs in music education, publishing, performance, and outreach, we reach over 27,000 members, friends, families, youth and educators every year. Want to discover what else we have to offer? Explore some of our resources and find what's right for you.
Everyone in Harmony: a bold vision for a bright future. Every person who loves to harmonize has a place in our family.
Curious what Barbershopping is? The best way to experience the phenomenon is in person. With chapters in almost every major city, we welcome you to find your local chapter and attend a meeting or performance, or request a chorus or quartet to sing at your next event!
