SingSeptemberSingSeptember is a national campaign taking place in September 2020. This initiative is designed to help spread the word about Barbershop Singing in Britain. It will be run throughout the month of September and the BABS Marketing Department will run a nationwide campaign. There will be something planned on every day of September.

Barbershop singers are very focussed on harmony and tuning, so it’s very common for us to feel a little uncomfortable when first learning about swing. The good news: we can all learn together! Here is the stream for this session, enjoy! The Swing For The Very Afraid Zoom on Thursday 10th September is now closed. We hope to see you at another event.
