All about the Barberellas (English)

The Barberellas – the first Barbershop Chorus in Bonn, Germany’s UN city and former capital

Bonn, Barbershop, Barberellas!

30 women, full of energy and with a passion for singing Barbershop, with quirky choreography – that’s the Barberellas. We perform year-round, giving concerts in the Bonn/Cologne area and at the German Barbershop Conventions.

The choir was founded in 1995 by Hedwig Brengmann-Domogalla. Still going strong and evolving constantly, with new members and musical arrangements, the Barberellas celebrated their 20th anniversary on March 15, 2015, with a sparkling show at the Augustinum Theatre in Bonn. The 20th anniversary concert had to be cancelled because of the corona lockdown, but – watch this space!

The chorus is a member of the „Chorverband NRW“ and BinG!-Barbershop in Germany.

Sebastian Dahmen has been our director since 2018.

We rehearse every Wednesday evening, with additional all-day and all-weekend workshops several times a year to keep up our reputation as one of the country’s most successful barbershop choruses.

New singers are very welcome. Sing high, sing low… if you are interested in singing four-part harmony, a capella,  the chances are the Barberellas could be the choir for you. If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you! Drop us a mail to

We’d love to meet you soon!
