This site is sponsored by the San Diego County chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Its purpose is to introduce young men of the county to the Barbershop style of A Cappella singing as a means of attracting more of them to vocal music in schools.
Do you think Barbershop is "old"? Think Again! Find out more about what we do in our Youth In Harmony Program. See how a Middle School quartet wowed them at a recent Forum, a school concert and County administration meeting.
Announcing a workshop for high school students, which is in the planning stages for the fall of 2016.

Pacific Suns, a Young Men's Barbershop Chorus, provides an opportunity for young men ages 14-24 to sing with other talented young men in a superior a cappella chorus and perform at various events in San Diego. This chorus is sponsored by the Youth In Harmony (YIH) program of San Diego County, as part of the larger YIH Program of the Barbershop Harmony Society. There are no fees for joining and expenses will be covered by the YIH program, donations and fundraisers. See our chorus page.
Barbershop is a fantastic sound, especially when YOU are singing it. We have a million ways for you to pick up this hobby with three or more of your friends. We will come to your school and give a demonstration, then arrange for getting music for you, and we will provide coaching during or after school. In addition, there are special events all year. Contact us at San Diego County Young Men In Harmony.
Here is how they do it in the Boston area.
