We are BinG!

Our nationwide association consists of about 45 quartets and 25 choirs, which are dedicated to barbershop singing. Our ensembles are in regular exchange, develop constantly and compete every 2 years.

With our medalist chorus Heavy Medal we represent the mixed barbershop singing at home and abroad.

We support our youth in our BinG! youth choir.

BinG! Youth Chorus

The BinG! Youth Chorus, founded in 2019, meets regularly for concerts. It is for all who are between 16 and 30 years old and have some barbershop experience. This way we support our own youth in the areas of singing, conducting, choreography, leadership etc. A website is under construction!

Heavy Medal Chorus

Our medalist chorus Heavy Medal represents our association nationally and worldwide. This chorus is recruited from singers who have sung a medal with their respective quartet in a competition organized by BinG! Here is an overview of the current quartets

BinG! Arrangers

BinG! promotes its own arrangers and offers you the possibility to choose from a variety of talented musicians to buy or arrange arrangements for you (the ensemble)!

BinG! Coaches

On the following pages you will find coaches who are trained within the Coaching Certification Program or whom we recommend due to their outstanding quality.


In this rather new team we are currently developing ways of training our own directors and how we can promote new directors. To this end, we want to develop our own ideas, but also integrate experiences and initiatives that already exist in BinG! member groups.
