CHB Greetings! FAQ Beginnings Membership Members Only

Welcome to the Southern Harmony Brigade!

Dear Fellow Barbershoppers and Guests,

Welcome to the Southern Harmony Brigade website, home of the Grandfather of all Harmony Brigades in the Barbershop Harmony Society.

The SHB is an "invitation only" organization under the auspices of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The SHB is composed of members of only the Dixie, Sunshine and Carolinas Districts.  We are always looking for leaders in our chapters, districts, and Society who espouse the goals, aims and purposes of our Society, and who love to sing. We meet one weekend a year, normally the weekend after Labor Day, and usually as the guest of a local chapter in one of our districts. The weekend is filled with quartet singing and chorus performances, along with our annual business meeting. It is a time to renew old friendships and to build new friendships with our guests and host chapters.  

The purpose of the SHB is to perpetuate the old American institution, the Barbershop Quartet, and to promote and encourage vocal harmony and good fellowship among its members; to encourage and promote the education of its members and the public in music appreciation; to promote public appreciation of Barbershop Harmony; and to promote and encourage interest and participation of its members in the affairs of the Dixie, Sunshine & Carolinas Districts of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America, Incorporated (SPEBSQSA, Inc.)

I hope that your visit to our website will help cultivate an even greater interest in our organization. We are always looking to share our music and leadership experience with all barbershoppers or interested parties. Thank you for taking time to come by and see what we are all about. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon!
