What we're about

The Arlingtones Barbershop Chorus is a non-profit co-ed/mixed singing group dedicated to preserving and performing barbershop music in and around Arlington VA. We are part of the Barbershop Harmony Society, which is a national organization that provides active programs and resources in music education, publishing, performance, and community outreach.

Since 1957, the Arlingtones and our chapter quartets have provided a fun tradition of clean, energetic, quality entertainment for a variety of functions. Our programs include holiday concerts, singing valentines, free guest lessons and holiday cheer at metro stations. Each fall, we produce and perform an original barbershop production which includes guest performers and an after-glow (party time 🥳).

Our 4-part harmony consists of Bass, Baritone, Lead, and Tenor. Everyone is welcome to join our rehearsals any time. Feel free to stop by for a listen and hear what it's all about. We also encourage guests to sing along and come meet the friendly faces that make up the Arlingtones.

Weekly Open Rehearsal

Needs a location

Do you miss singing? Wanna try a cappella singing? How about barbershop style with close harmony and quartets? Although traditionally a mens activity, our chorus welcomes all ages and genders to sing the four barbershop parts- Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass. Regardless of your voice range, we'll guide you through a friendly quick voice assessment singing "Happy Birthday" to help place you in the section where your voice blends well and where you feel comfortable. If you want to become a better singer, then stick with us and let's make some fun four-part close harmony! We sing traditional barbershop songs, "Polecats", tags and barbershop versions of popular songs.

A little shy? No worries, you can just come listen and see what it's all about!
