Welcome. to. BinG!

Barbershop in Germany!

Barbershop originated in the US when men in the Southern states went to the barbershop to get a haircut and started singing a cappella in 4-part-harmony with each other in the early 20th century. In 1938 the "Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America" or simply put "Barbershop Harmony Society" was founded and has been one of the driving organizations to promote Barbershop singing world wide. 

 

The German Barbershop organization BinG! (Barbershop in Germany) was founded in 1991 and has always been a mixed organization: Female, Male and mixed quartets and choruses singing, competing and learning together. 

 

BinG!'s focus is to promote Barbershop music in Germany through an educational offering, contests and various networking activities to engage members and improve the quality of the groups' performances.  Thus, Barbershop is becoming more well known with the a cappella crowd in Germany.
