What is Barbershop Harmony?
Barbershop harmony is a style of a cappella music characterized by four-part harmonies, but is renowned for its "ringing" chords and the "fifth voice". This is produced by the barbershop chorus or quartet singing precise combinations of tuned notes and results in overtones that actually create a fifth harmony part that you can hear. This effect is so powerful and delightful to the listeners (and singers) that it has been called "the angel's voice".
This summer Nashville is the host city for the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Convention. On Sunday, July 3rd we will be presenting Barberroo 2016 - A Really Awesome Barbershop Show! This incredible show will feature the award winning Music City Chorus and a line up of awesome international champions and extremely entertaining quartets.
The show will be held in downtown Nashville at the Grand Lodge of Tennessee. The theater's acoustics and atmosphere (1923) are perfect for Barbershop Harmony. If you enjoy a cappella or great music in a classic theater you don't want to miss this show.
