About the Canberra Chordsmen

The Barbershop Harmony Club of Canberra Inc. was started in October 1987 by a group of enthusiasts – men and women – who wanted to sing songs in the “old style” in four-part harmony.

In 1990 the Australian Association of Men Barbershop Singers Inc (AAMBS) announced that the first National Australian convention (for men) would be held on the Gold Coast the following year.

This led the organisation, early in 1991, to split into two single-sex choruses. The women formed Brindabella Chorus, which is now fully chartered with Sweet Adelines, and the men continued under the BHCC name, forming The Canberra Chordsmen, which is now their main performing chorus.
