Barbershop Harmony

A capella singing in close harmony in a chorus or quartet.

Barbershop Harmony is a true American art form. It can be performed by men or women, but not both genders together. It involves a capella singing (without instrumental accompaniment) in close harmony, just for fun and/or for competition.

There are four voice parts in barbershop singing and the names are used for both men and women's groups -- Lead (melody), Tenor (highest notes), Bass (lowest notes) and Baritone, or Bari for short. It's the Bari notes that fit in the middle of the chords that give barbershop it's unique sound.
