National Barbershop Quartet Day is celebrated on April 11 of every year. A barbershop quartet is a music sung in the barbershop genre by a group of four singers, either all male or all female. The music uses a four-part harmony; the style is called Capella. The four vocal parts of singers are lead, bass, tenor, and baritone. Singers appear wearing straw hats with their harmonies. Barbershop Quartet music is amazing because music is created out of nothing but the four voices. Take a minute on this day to appreciate the path; the music has traveled in all these years.

There is no bad day that can’t be overcome by listening to a barbershop quartet. This is just truth, plain and simple.” – Aldous Huxley

History of National Barbershop Quartet Day

It was first officially celebrated in Oklahoma on April 11, 1938, and was founded by the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America, now known as the Barbershop Harmony Society. Barbershop singing started in the late 1800s and early 1900s in America. Barbershop music found its popularity between 1900 and 1919, and became obscure in the 1920s. The music came back into style in the mid-20th century with the help of the Society for Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America.
