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.

We Sing at East York Tree Lighting
Dec 11, 2016

The weather outside was frightful, but the choir was so delightful. Actually, the weather was a bit cold and breezy but it was the perfect night for a tree lighting. The only thing that could have added to the atmosphere would have been a gentle snow, but we didn't get that. And the East York Barbershoppers who attended had a great time drinking hot chocolate, eating cookies and singing Christmas songs at Councillor Janet Davis' tree lighting at Dawes Crossing (Victoria Park and Dawes Road).

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.
