Nelson Bays Harmony has around 40 singers of all ages and backgrounds, and we sing unaccompanied 4-part harmony, in the barbershop style. Barbershop music is arranged to produce beautiful ringing chords that are a buzz to sing and to listen to!
Our repertoire includes modern a cappella songs, show tunes, beautiful ballads, and numerous Christmas carols! Read about booking us to sing at your event!
