I spent the week of the 4th of July in Las Vegas for the Annual Barbershop Harmony Society International Convention. It was a blast. Quartets and Choruses that qualify are outstanding musicians, very creative and quite entertaining. The Competition was staged at the MGM Grand and the MGM Garden Center Arena.
If you have 7 minutes - check out this video and you will be amazed at the new style of quartet and chorus singing in America.
I sing with the Alliance Chorus out of Columbus. We finished 8th in the global competition. 31 Chorus participated.
Note the Forefront Quartet who finished 2nd. The bass is Bryan O'Dell who grew up in the Crestview area, of Ashland County.
