The Tampa Chapter is part of the Barbershop Harmony Society and consists of more than 50 men who share in the enjoyment of singing. Unaccompanied by instruments, barbershop music is a unique American art form with four-part close harmony which produces "ringing" chords. The growth of the music style was enhanced by the types of songs popular between the 1860s and 1920s – songs with sentimental lyrics and simple melodies that made harmonizing easy. In their performances, the Heralds of Harmony try to preserve the long-standing tradition of barbershopping while including today's exciting melodies. The unique four-part barbershop sound is enjoyed by young and old. In the last twenty-four years, the Heralds have achieved national acclaim, winning district contests and placing near the top in International Chorus Competition. The chorus placed 9th in the world the last time they competed in 2015. This past July the Heralds again won the Sunshine District Chorus Competition earning them the right to compete in the 2017 International Competition being held next July in Las Vegas. The Heralds of Harmony perform throughout the year for major social, civic, community and charitable events throughout West Central Florida and offer quartet entertainment for a wide range of audiences including businesses, service and social organizations, and the Tampa Bay Community. In addition to providing an enjoyable and enriching opportunity for men to engage in the performing arts, the Tampa Chapter supports several charitable organizations in its community outreach each year.
