The Halifax Harmonizers
The Halifax Harmonizers is the Halifax chapter of the international Barbershop Harmony Society, a worldwide organization celebrating the gift of barbershop music. Forty men strong of all ages who enjoy and learn to perform A cappella four part harmony. Our youngest member is typically in his teens while our oldest in his 80’s. From diapers to diapers – an amazing journey!
We focus on achieving a high level of a cappella singing respecting each member’s expectations of a great personal experience. We have an active new-member recruitment process. It will improve your memory and lengthen your life. Do we need to say anything more!
We promote a cappella singing among local youth, particularly in the high schools, supporting and encouraging interest in singing. We are active in the Halifax region by performing wherever and whenever possible.
Our annual ‘chorus show’ at the end of November includes performances by local groups such as boys or girls choirs. We sing at local libraries, churches and church halls, Halifax or Dartmouth waterfronts, and at senior citizen homes. You don’t need to go anywhere else for a better time.
At the Rehearsal Hall
Rehearsal time are on Monday evenings from 7 to 10 pm at the Trinity Anglican Church, 321 Main Ave in Halifax, NS. We encourage men of all ages and walks of life to join us as our guests. And we are an uncharacteristically handsome bunch (can’t explain why!).
Two very talented co-directors, Russell Sketchley and Paul Creaser, who work together, along with the support of a strong music team, providing quality learning experiences for current members and potential recruits.
All men from the community who can sing a simple song, e.g. ‘Row, row, row your boat’, are welcome as potential members of our chorus. You’ll wonder why you didn’t jump aboard earlier!
