Etobicoke and Mississauga's Barbershop Harmony Chorus
Humber Express is a barbershop style singing chorus that is a chapter member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, formerly known as the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA).
Originally sung in quartets around barbershop corners, the movement has evolved to chorus as well as barbershop quartet groups. Choruses often include several quartets who have the time and desire to sing and perform. The singing is done in 4 parts: Tenor, Lead, Baritone, and Bass without instruments. Harmony is generated by close intonation for the chords. This requires practice and a lot of fun. We are a non-profit organization and monies earned from performances go to support charities for the vocally impaired.
Humber Express is looking for male singers. If you're like us, you can't stop singing. There's always a little melody running through your head, ready to burst out. But most guys aren't professional singers and breaking out into song in public draws more than a few odd looks. For more than 40 years congenial men of good character have been ringing out the glorious sounds of barbershop harmony. Now you can be a part of a group of men who share a love for good close harmony. Come join us in a song and have the time of your life.
