Our Mission

Together we inspire and empower each other to strive for musical excellence and creative performance. We share the joy of singing by offering performances that entertain, energize and positively influence our community. We welcome new members in an atmosphere of camaraderie and friendship.


Barrie Soundwaves fulfills this mission statement by:


Providing a fun and creative learning environment that educates and trains our members in the singing of four-part harmony, A Cappella, Barbershop style. We aim to achieve musical excellence through our weekly rehearsals, professional coaching and regional education events and workshops.

Providing local entertainment in and around Barrie and Simcoe County in the form of Christmas performances, Musical Barbershop productions, local tours nights and private events.

Hosting a free annual Young Women in Harmony event that invites 13 - 18-year-old women to join us for a full day to learn the benefits of participating in events in their community, performing and learning vocal production and musicality, specifically in the Barbershop style. This includes vocal instruction from our director, choreography, coaching and meals.

Welcoming all women in the community to join our chorus without prejudice. We promote the freedom to express yourself and discover the voice and talent within.

We provide a sense of sisterhood resulting in friendships and a positive support system within the community.
