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).

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

Meet the Team

The Administrative Council takes care of chorus business. The most publicly visible members are the Director, Assistant Director, and President.

Alan Briand

Alan Briand Director

Alan caught the Barbershop bug when he was 18. He has expressed himself through his quartet and chorus performances since 1974. He has been the director of The South Shore Saints since 2005.

Steve Wheaton

Steve Wheaton Assistant Director

Steve joined barbershop and The South Shore Saints in April 1977. He sang in many quartets and competed at both the Division and District levels. Steve was the Coordinator of the Great Northern Harmony Workshop since 1996 and the sponsor since 2006.

Guy Filion

Guy Filion Past 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 was president of The South Shore Saints from 2015 to 2022.

Luc Larose

Luc Larose 2024 President

Luc was introduced to Barbershop in 2011, at the age of 54, and like so many men before him, he fell in love with a cappella singing. For him, the chords and overtone from singing in the barbershop style bring so much emotion. Luc especially enjoys quartet singing for various community events.

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!
