Core values: Inclusiveness, Quality and Entertaining
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 Singers in Harmony event that invites 13-18-year-olds to join us for a full day of learning 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.

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