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.

Reflections and Looking Forward
Apr 4, 2019

Last week we lost a member of our chorus. Terry Aylsworth was larger than life. His booming bass voice reverberated through the Hall for many years, and was only superceded by his warm and welcoming personality towards anyone with whom he interacted. While the time we had with him was much too short, we are grateful for his guidance, leadership and friendship.

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.
