The Canterbury Plainsmen is a Barbershop Chorus - a group of men who like to sing songs written in the Barbershop style.
We are based in the beautiful city of Christchurch
, in New Zealand's South Island.
The Chorus meets every Monday night, and visitors are always welcome. We love to have an audience !
We currently have a membership of over 60 men, from young to not-so-young. All are from different walks of life, have different jobs (or are retired), and different interests. The one thing they do have in common is a love of Barbershop music. Despite what you may think, you don't have to be the world's best singer to join a chorus and enjoy Barbershop harmony. Our members are not professional singers, but regular guys having fun. Our talented Music Team is always ready to help you make the most of your singing voice. We'll soon have you shakin' the rafters !
