Next Generation Barbershop Programs

The Clipper City Chordsmen are proud to serve as one of the three found chapters of the Wisconsin Youth Harmony Festival and host chapter for the first four years.

Excerpts from the Barbershop Harmony Society:


Again and again, we make a difference for students in challenging environments. Through our Next Generation Barbershop Chorus festivals, we actively work to support underestimated school communities.

The immediate result: young people thrive in the barbershop ecosystem. They come back for more, returning to the stage as long as they can.

More than 80% of Varsity Quartet Contest singers from the last 5 years are still actively singing barbershop. They join barbershop chapters. They turn into directors, arrangers, YouTube multitrackers. They come to Harmony University for the Next Generation Chorus and make a musical racket all night long, and we love it.

Barbershop becomes a lifestyle. As one member writes, “The Barbershop Harmony Society has helped me through 3 big cross-country moves over the last 10 years. I’ve had a chorus in each town I’ve moved to, and immediately found a place to belong in a city where I knew few people initially.”
