Barbershop Fast Facts:
Barbershop harmony is harmony produced by four parts: tenor, lead, baritone and bass.
Barbershop music is a four-part a cappella harmony style of singing famous for its “ringing” chords in which an over tone is produced, creating the sound of a fifth note.
Like jazz, barbershop was born in America and remains a unique vocal music art form
