Welcome to CanberraChordsmen.org.au, the website of Canberra’s premier male a'cappella chorus.
Our exciting Sing Barbershop Harmony Program welcomes beginners and experienced singers to learn about singing the old yet very popular and exciting artform of Barbershop Harmony. If you are a beginner you will learn loads about singing. We reckon we'll even teach the experienced a thing or two about vocal technique and much more.
The program is absolutely free. It runs for 5 weeks each Thursday starting April 9 from 7pm at the Woden Seniors Club. Corner of Melrose Drive and Corinna Street. See our "visit a rehearsal page" for a map and further details. For the finale of the last week all participants, new and established will get to perform the newly learnt songs to an audience of the Canberra Chordsmen at one of their events. After the program we hope you will join our chorus for the action packed next six months of our events calender and beyond.
Please sign up for this program by sending an email to
and feel free to ask us any questions. We look foward to hearing from you and meeting you on the 9th!
As we are an all male chorus this program is for men only but if you are a female then please help spread the word to any men you know that might be intersted in it and if you are interesting in singing Barbershop Harmony then we urge you to make contact with our sister chorus.
Canberra Chordsmen sing a variety of a cappella songs in close four part harmony, some in the style of barbershop quartet. The same style as our "cousins" from New Zealand, current world champion barbershop quartet Musical Island Boys. Our repertoire ranges from barbershop to doo-wop, love songs and spirituals, upbeat numbers and ballads.
The Canberra Chordsmen have competed over many years at National Conventions and Eisteddfods, and performed at regular gigs in and around Canberra. We are always looking to recruit new members, fans or sponsors, and we would be delighted to perform at your function or event.
