Barbershop Style

 

Barbershop harmony is produced by four vocal parts singing a cappella (without accompaniment) blending of beautiful and exciting chords and harmonies that "ring in the rafters".  Barbershop is wholly an American art form traditionally sung informally by men, 'tagging' spontaneously in quartets or small groups.

Barbershop singing has evolved into a sophisticated art form, now performed by fabulous men's and women's quartets and full choruses, performing on stage in full costume and with choreography for large, appreciative audiences.

Grand Olympics Chorus is part of Sweet Adelines International, an educational non-profit organization comprised of more than 33,000 women ages 18-88.  We are professionals, homemakers, students, and educators, English and non-English speaking but all singers who are member of the world's largest singing organization for women.

Listen to a sample of Barbershop style...first you will hear the pitch being blown, then the 4 parts resolve the pitch, then the singing begins.  Enjoy!
