Eight Bells

Eight bells

This barbershop group was formed in 1967 by men from The Genevans who loved "close harmony" and the camaraderie of men’s singing. They chose the name "Eight Bells" because of the old phrase, "Eight Bells and All’s Well." On the old sailing ships eight bells signified the end of one watch and the beginning of another. Watches were four hours long. Time was kept with a half-hour glass. When the glass was turned, the bell was rung. At the sound of eight bells, the watch changed. In The Genevans, Eight Bells has always been a student-led group, and new members are selected by the returning members each year. Their repertoire includes unaccompanied male-voice quartet and choral music.
