Søren Detlefsen

Music has always been a part of my life, and when I moved to Aarhus to study Musicology, it was the beginning of a long journey. I first encountered barbershop in the fall of 2014 when I stumbled across a certain “A cappella Trudbol” on Youtube. This led to me forming my first barbershop quartet (Rabarbershop) a few days later with a few friends from university.

In 2017 I joined the men’s barbershop chorus, BarbAros, where I acted as both section leader and chair.

This was also the year where my quartet, HusAar, (European silver medalist of 2022) was formed. We were the first Danish barbershop quartet to qualify to Internationals.

After being a music teacher for 3 years, I finally took the plunge and created my own business, Detlefsen Music, specialized in barbershop and a cappella music.

Since January 2022, I’ve been the conductor of the only active women’s barbershop chorus in Denmark, WondAros.

I am also the proud owner of the Youtube channel, Barbershop Tag-Along, which is an online learning platform about everything barbershop. From tag tutorials, to livestreams about arranging in the barbershop style, to music theory videos and how to apply it to the barbershop style.

I have a masters degree in musicology and English from Aarhus University, and my bachelor’s thesis was about Barbershop and the Barbershop 7th Chord.
