Barberina was the first women’s barbershop chorus in Israel. The choir was formed by Alex Eshed in 1999 as a quartet, and he has directed it ever since. Today, Barberina numbers some 12 women, and is continually recruiting.
The choir’s singing style is a cappella (no instrumental accompaniment), in 4-part arrangements. Barbershop style songs are at the core of the choir’s repertoire. However, the group’s catalog of songs also includes jazz, doo-wop, rock, pop, ballads, gospel and more. Although most of the repertoire is in English, we also have Hebrew songs in our programs.
Barberina performs at cultural venues, festivals, fund-raising events and choir assemblies. Book Us for your next event!
