About HCH

The Harmonizers welcome everyone and the voice parts include tenor, lead, baritone and bass, using the existing male barbershop arrangements. Women will likely join either tenor or lead (usually the melody).

The Harbor City Harmonizers, under the direction of Justin Walker, are an A Cappella chorus of the Melbourne Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Our entire chorus, as well as several quartets, are available to perform at public and private events in and around Brevard County, Florida.

What is Barbershop Harmony?

Barbershop harmony is generally considered to be one of the few uniquely American-born musical styles, alongside jazz, with which it shares origins. The simplest definition of barbershop centers around:

- Relatively simple melodies
- Sung in four-part harmony
- Without instruments
- With the melody carried in the second-highest voice part (barbershop “lead”), a high tenor harmonizing above that, a bass singer singing fundamental harmonies (mainly roots and fifths), and a baritone filling in above and below the melody.
