TRAILS WEST BARBERSHOP CHORUS IS preparing for the Christmas holiday season. This winter we have several appearances planned. We are the largest Men’s Chorus in Olathe and we would like for you to join us.
The Trails West Barbershoppers hosted their Annual show September 14, 2013 at the Bell Cultural Events Center on the campus of MidAmerica Nazarene University.

Q. Where did barbershop originate?
A. Barbershop is a uniquely American music style/art form, created at the turn of the century by ear harmonizers, or “woodshedders,” who sang without benefit of printed arrangements. It is largely the old songs because the kinds of melodies that are best adapted to the style are those written in the heyday of Tin Pan Alley, from 1890 to 1920. Most Vaudeville shows had a barbershop quartet, although the singers did not use that name.
