The mission of The Greensboro Tarheel Chapter is to provide wholesome and quality musical entertainment for patrons of all ages, to encourage, promote and teach the barbershop art form among local youth and choral groups, to be good citizens involved in community outreach , and to provide a venue for interested singers to come together in fellowship and harmony.
The Barbershop Harmony Society, originally named the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America, Inc. (SPEBSQSA), is the first of several organizations to promote and preserve barbershop music as an art form. Founded by Owen C. Cash and Rupert I. Hall in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1938, the organization quickly grew, promoting barbershop harmony among men of all ages. As of 2014, just under 23,000 men in the United States and Canada are members of this organization whose focus is on a cappella music. The international headquarters is located in Nashville, Tennessee.
In North America there are 17 districts comprising a total of some 767 chapters. The Greensboro Tarheel Chorus is one of the 26 chapters in the Carolinas District.
We are a local men's a cappella barbershop chorus based in Greensboro, NC. The Chorus and/or quartets are available for both public and private performances.
