What is Barbershop?
Technically speaking, Barbershop harmony is a style of unaccompanied singing
with three voices harmonizing to the melody. The lead usually sings the melody,
with the tenor harmonizing above the lead. The bass sings the lowest harmonizing
notes and the baritone provides in-between notes, either above or below the lead
to make chords (specifically, dominant-type or "Barbershop" sevenths) that give
Barbershop its distinctive, "full" sound. For more information about origins of our barbershop singing style, click here
