Barbershop around the world… part 2

Our barbershop is a hobby (to some it is a life-style, and to some it is a job/career opportunity).  Those who make it a career are lucky to be involved in something that brings so much joy to tens of thousands of people all around the world.

As mentioned in a previous post, there are 3 main organizations… the Barbershop Harmony Society for the men based here in the United States of America, and for the women, Sweet Adelines International, and Harmony Incorporated.

Some of the other organizations around the world include: Barbershop in Germany (BinG), British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS), Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers (LABBS), Dutch Association of Barbershop Singers (DABS), Ladies Association of Dutch Barbershop Singers (Holland Harmony), Society of Nordic Barbershop Singers (SNOBS), Southern Part of Africa Tonsorial Singers (SPATS), New Zealand Association of Barbershop Singers (NZABS), Australian Association of Men’s Barbershop Singers (AAMBS), and the Irish Association of Barbershop Singers (IABS)

Started in the US and spread around the world.  How great is that!

Stay “tuned”

    Hello Jerry, This is Shaw. Nice blog. Though I knew nothing about “Barbershop Music”, I started to be very interested. I would like to learn more about it. Please suggest me some sites or information source so that I can study about your passion. Could you recommend some music titles I could download from iTune?
