BNC sweeps1Bella Nova has introduced a whole new way for Washington, D.C., area women to enjoy acappella harmony in the barbershop style!

Created to be commuter friendly and family friendly, Bella Nova generally meets two Sunday afternoons per month, and you and singers of any age in your life (daughters, friends, co-workers, nieces, mothers, etc.) are ALWAYS welcome. Whether you’re brand new to barbershop or you’re looking to enjoy the barbershop style in a whole new way, please come see what Bella Nova is all about.


Bella Nova launched in 2013 under the direction of notable barbershopper Richard Lewellen. Bella Nova is the first Virginia-based chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international, non-profit organization whose purpose is to empower all women through education, friendship and acappella singing in the barbershop style. At the 2017 International Convention & Contests, Bella Nova placed 4th!
