Encouraging Barbershop Singing
The Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers is committed to encouraging barbershop singing through Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands.
We truly appreciate the support and encouragement from barbershoppers from all over the world and we continue to encourage more people to embrace this unique artform.
The ladies of Capital Connection (LABBS) had a wonderful time at En Armonia 2016 – while the weather was a trifle windy and not as hot as we’d have liked, the welcome was warm, and the atmosphere was wonderful. It was great to make some friends from across Europe who share the same amazing hobby
Calp quedó impresionada en la primera convención que acogimos en 2014. Fue la primera vez que tuvimos la oportunidad de acercarnos al maravilloso mundo del estilo musical Barber ́s music. Estamos encantados de ser por unos días sus anfitriones y de ser epicentro de la Barber ́s music en Europa.En nombre de la ciudad de Calp, agradezco la confianza que la Asociación ha depositado en nuestro municipio escogiéndola como sede de este Congreso y animo a todos a venir a visitarla y a disfrutar de todas las propuestas culturales y turísticas que pueden encontrar en ella.
I would just like to say, on behalf of the Major Oak Chorus, how much we all enjoyed SABS 2016. The organization and everything else about the event was superb. The friendly atmosphere and great afterglows were remarked upon in particular. Many of our number also stayed on after the competition for an extended holiday.
We came for the harmony and went home with full spirits and new friends from all over the world! Tip: one of the most fun conventions ever!
The White Rosettes had a fantastic time at SABS, which, as one of the smaller-scale conventions, felt particularly personal and exceptionally welcoming to us. We had lots of opportunities to sing (both on stage and in the bar afterwards!), and being able to relax on the beach during the day was a real treat. The hotel and concert venue were great and it was all really well organised. We have been to SABS twice now and it never fails to be a weekend to remember!
Cheshire Chord Company had a fabulous time at En Armonia in April 2015. The convention is always a well-organised and very friendly event with quartets and choruses coming from all over Europe to join the competition. The sun was shining for the duration of our stay, and in between rehearsals and our time competing we were able to take advantage of the lovely weather by the pool whilst catching up with friends and fellow barbershoppers.
We have visited En Armonia a number of times and always look forward to our visits there. Hopefully we’ll be back again soon!
Thank you so much for another wonderful SABS convention. All the meticulous arrangements are so much appreciated by everyone from Amersham A Cappella. Our chorus has had such a fantastic time. I can’t begin to tell you all the positive comments I’ve received from chorus members and supporters. Please pass on our appreciation to all of your team. Congratulations!
