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.

This Is Your Voice by John Colapinto

CBC Sunday Magazine - An interview with Canadian Journalist, John Colapinto with host, Piya Chattopadhyay. The power and mystery of the human voice.   Scroll down to listen the recorded interview from Sunday Feb 7.  In the interview I learned that Piya is a classically trained singer.  This special attribute with Broadcasters is not uncommon.

Check out John's new book, "This Is The Voice" on Amazon.ca. 

I bought the book and have justed started reading.
