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.

Sing out at the Sumach!
Posted On: Sep 21, 2022

The East York Barbershoppers are finally singing for a live audience once more! Everyone in the chorus is excited and grateful for our first public performance since the pandemic.

After years of dealing with lockdowns, with quarantine isolations, with an underlying sense of unease... It's so great to be able to bring joy and smiles to people's faces in these trying times.

Many thanks to the kind folks at the Sumach for hosting us and our friends. We were joined by a couple of quartets: Three Notes and a Rest and Constructive Criticism, and boy did they put out some banger performances.

All in all, we had a fantastic time, and here's to more performances in the future!

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.
