Education events

Social events

Meet-ups in hotel lobbies

The real action at a barbershop convention is in the lobby of the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, where quartets spontaneously burst into song day and night. Strangers from across the globe become instant best buddies singing together.

Journalists -- You can do this, too!

The best way to understand barbershop is to sing it.  Be brave: we can teach any journalist how to sing one note, while we provide the harmony. (Great for interviews and B-roll.)
