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.

EYBS Holiday Party 2023
Posted On: Dec 19, 2023

Merry Christmas! It was wonderful seeing friends and families gathered around us once again to celebrate the season with some good ole' holiday caroling. Mr. Penstone returns to us once again providing us with some top notch quality emcee-ing; much thanks to the lovely pianist Amanta for reprising her role this year; and we were joined by plenty of muscial guests as usual.

Following that, some familiar quartets: Constructive Criticism (with George Shields as a special guest!), and the Green Brothers with Opie and Pat.

A special solo, performed by Malisha - we've always been impressed by how good she sounds!

The ladies of Moving Parts and Moving Sparks joins us for a number or two (with a humorous take on how modern holidays are celebrated 📱)

and, saving the best for last, one of our final guests... Maple Reserve! (singing one of the only holiday songs in their repertoire... in a major key 😉)

Our favorite hippo hero shows up towards the end of the show... 🦛🦛🦛

and to close it off, everyone in the East York Barbershop family wishes yall a merry little Christmas now! See you in the New Year.

We'll be singing again on Thursday (12/21) and Friday (12/22) again next week from 4pm to 6pm. We hope you stay for a song or two if you're around during those times.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!

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.
