Due to the COVID-19-pandemic we sadly had to cancel the Barbershop Music Festival, the Harmony College and the European Harmony Brigade for this year.
But you don't have to do without choir and quartet rehearsals completely. Here we have collected some information about the dealing with COVID-19 in the choir. Among them are tutorials for the digital execution of choir rehearsals.
Informationen zum abgesagten Barbershop Musikfestival und zu dessen Rückabwicklung findet ihr auf der Festivalhomepage oder in den FAQs zur Festivalabsage. Information about the cancelled Barbershop Music Festival and how to reverse the cancellation can be found on the festival homepage or in the festival cancellation FAQs.
Barbershop in Germany!
Barbershop singing is a US-American subspecies of a cappella music, which originated at the beginning of the 20th century and has been cultivated since then. Worldwide there are - especially in the English speaking countries - different barbershop organizations, which had dedicated themselves exclusively to male or female barbershop singing. Gradually, however, there is a change in thinking and an opening for mixed barbershop singing.
The German Barbershop Association BinG! (Barbershop in Germany) has understood itself early as an organization for choirs and quartets in any, also mixed ensembles, and takes a pioneering position worldwide for mixed Babrershop singing. With numerous events and activities, the association contributes to improving the exchange of experiences and knowledge, which among other things has led to a significant increase in quality in our groups - certainly one of the reasons why Barbershop music is becoming more and more popular in the German a cappella scene.
