About Us

Founded in 1960, The South Shore Saints is a Greenfield Park based Barbershop Chorus.
We are part of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a world wide a capella singing organization that counts over 33,000 members.
Our chorus is a non profit organization that promotes chorus and quartet barbershop singing. We compete at Division and District levels.
One of our missions is to help charitable organizations either through donations or through free sing-outs (Fund raising events, senior homes, foundations, etc).

Music We Sing

Our repertoire is a mix of:

• Beginning of 20th century American popular songs (Original Barbershop style)
• Jazz flavoured arrangements of the most beautiful songs ever written
• A Capella arrangements of contemporary popular songs (French and English)
• Some spiritual numbers for special occasions.

Guy Filion

Guy Filion President

Guy became a barbershopper in 2006, at the age of 60, and wishes it had been sooner! For him, singing in four part harmony a cappella style is a challenge, a cure, just great fun.
Guy has been president of The South Shore Saints since 2015.

Messages from the Team

Singing in four part harmony a cappella style is a challenge, a cure, just great fun. It’s a real physical and mental workout: lyrics, music, nuances...
A song can transport all of us to different lands and feelings. We love to sing, but don’t we all, in the shower or on the street? Is singing not an integral part of our lives, our cultures, no matter our origins or our beliefs? In normal times, is there not singing in every church or other worship centers, every theater, every concert hall? We all need to be willing to express ourselves during special occasions. Singing is giving a gift to the audience!
