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 a "fifth voice" which is produced by singing particular combinations of notes that are perfectly tuned. This effect is so powerful and delightful to the listeners (and singers) that it has been called "the angel's voice".
Barbershop performances comprise both musical and visual expression to convey the theme of each song - where delivery is from the heart, believable, and sensitive to the song and its arrangement. As much as can be written about Barbershop Harmony it still must be experienced live to fully appreciate the beauty and excitement of this musical art form.
