Next Generation Barbershop

Make amazing vocal harmony!
Regardless of age or experience!


100% pure a cappella. No tracks. No AutoTune. No instruments. Just the shared immersion of voices in perfect harmony.


Next Generation Barbershop helps singers up to age 25 discover a sound that’s uniquely their own. Distinct programs for singers in grades 6-12 and post-high school offer ensemble options to fit your skills and interests: men’s, women’s, or mixed voice quartets and choruses.


Next Generation Barbershop Contests and Festivals offer easy video entry, exciting destination events, and funding for travel and lodging.
