East York Barbershoppers

The East York Barbershoppers (EYBS) are a 40+ man chorus that sings close four part harmony in the barbershop style. We rehearse weekly, perform in shows and at community events regularly, and compete annually against other barbershop choruses from all across Ontario (and on occasion Internationally). Our members come from all walks of life and all across Toronto, and even from outside the GTA, but are brought together by a passion for this great hobby of barbershop singing. We also take great pride in serving our community through music education, outreach performances, and direct support for affiliated charitable organizations such as Harmony Hall Centre for Seniors and Harmonize for Speech.

Landmark H4S Donation for EYBS
Jun 14, 2016

At the conclusion of Happy Together, our show in May this year, East York Barbershoppers were thrilled to be able to present a $7500 cheque to Harmonize for Speech (H4S) through its Chairman, George Shields, and Treasurer, Bruce Dibble.  This allowed H4S to fund two initiatives that were in jeapordy.  And with that cheque the East York Chapter has now donated a total of $500,000 since the charity was founded in 1977.

About Barbershop Singing

Essentially barbershop singing boils down to taking a melody line and harmonizing to it using three other voice parts, to create four-part chords that really "ring"! Click here to learn more.
