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.

Inter-Chapter Practice with the Scarborough Dukes of Harmony
Posted On: Jun 19, 2023
The power of in-person interactions was on full display when the East York Barbershoppers and the Scarborough Dukes of Harmony got together for a group practice session this Monday. It was great to see friends again, but even better to be able to sing together once more.

Performing for each other, and performing together under the direction of Pat and Jordan really energized the group throughout the night. We performed some tags, sang some polecats together, and even had performances from quartets in both groups.

The night wrapped up with some popcorn and refreshments, and lots of chatting and catching up. What an incredible evening!

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.
