Description

The Barberfellas: PAYBACK!

Close harmonies from LGBT friends and allies across the British Isles

For the last 18 months, the Barberfellas – London’s mini barbershop chorus with a twist – has been travelling far and wide, singing as the guests of some of the best choral groups the British Isles has to offer... Now it is time for “Payback”!

“Payback” is a special choral concert hosted by the Barberfellas which features our LGBT friends and allies HeadQuarters from Bromley, the Homonics from Dublin, Pride & Joy from Newcastle and the Southampton Gay Men's Chorus. With a wide mix of musical styles from barbershop to pop it will be a great evening of vocal entertainment for everyone.

Not only that, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Pink Singers India 2017 project. Choral singing is very dear to all our hearts and we are well aware of the strength and community being in a choir can engender. This project aims to bring Rainbow Voices Mumbai, India’s first LGBT choir, to the UK to experience Pride in London in 2017, and to share the concert stage with the Pink Singers, Europe’s longest running LGBT choir. The choirs will exchange experiences and and show solidarity with Rainbow Voices Mumbai's goal of singing in India, in order to transform perceptions and challenge stereotypes about being LGBT in a country where being gay is still criminalized.
