About the Chorus:

Mainport Barbershop Singers (MBS) was originated in 1992 and is unique in its kind in the southwest of Holland. With about 55 members MBS is one of the largest barbershop choruses, and belongs to the top 3 of  ‘barbershopping’ Holland.

MBS is an active mens chorus and during our shows we like to combine quality and pleasure while performing. Our show should not only be a joy to your ears but it should also be a joy to your eyes ! That’s why we are rehearsing very hard every thursday night.

Musical director Jurate Haasdijk Bražukaité is our very gifted, competent and inspiring director and we have been coached by the top of “Barbershop world” with names like Martin Ford, David Campbell and 2014 international quartet gold medal champion Matthew Gifford.

Throughout our shows we like to mix ballads with up tempo songs. Our repertoire consists mainly of Barbershop traditionals and evergreens starting at the sixties. We sing songs of the Beatles, Everly Brothers, Neil Sedaka and many many others.

Every other year a national barbershop convention is held. This is a very important and exiting event where we battle with other barbershop choruses in Holland. The convention is being organized by Holland Harmony, this is the overall Dutch Barbershop Organisation. The last convention was held in 2015, MBS’s won the bronze medal with a record score of 66,6%!
