Who We Are 

We are the Little Egypt chorus of the Carbondale Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  We are an International organization with just under 23,000 members worldwide.  Men of all ages and from all walks of life comprise our membership, with one thing in common - we all enjoy singing Barbershop music.  The Barbershop musical style is an American art form.  We strive to preserve the style and keep it alive worldwide by actively singing and encouraging other men to do so.

What We Do

We provide the opportunity and encouragement for members to sing in our chorus and a quartet.  We provide the music and the instructions needed to learn the music.  We perform for various organizations with our Chapter chorus and quartets.  We offer entertainment enjoyed by the entire family.  We support local programs of public interest.

Why We Do It

It's fun!  Barbershop Harmony is for men who like to sing and enjoy the sound of male voices blending chords in the Barbershop style.  Singing helps you forget your worries and makes you feel better by improving your attitude toward life and your fellow man.  Singing allows you to share something you enjoy with others.  Barbershop Harmony expresses a message from an era when people enjoyed the simpler pleasures of life.  Singing is good for your health.  Take the time to sing.  Better yet, come sing with us!  Call any member of the Board of Directors listed in the link below for more information.
