    Default Barbershop Convention

    If you're in Scarborough on the 25th of May, come to the Spa on the South Bay. 30 choruses and 17 quartets will be compeating for the title "National Champions" in barbershop singing! My chorus won bronze last year and this year we're going for gold! It's going to be a scream!

    Barbershop singing is absolutely fascinating. Wish I was able to go. Does anyone know of a website online where the subject is discussed in depth ?

    Thanks

    i don't really know of any reliable forums where the topic is discussed, mainly because it is largely dominanted by computer illiterate old men but i can refer you to many sites for the british association, american association where you can read about various champion quartets, theres so much i could tell you, so little time!

    Damn! 4th place - and after all that hard work!
    Never mind - always next year, and 4th out of 30 isn't bad going.

    Rehersals for the Spirit of Harmony Chorus begin next Thursday (7:00pm) at Barwick in Elmet Village Hall. We need 80 men on the rises if we're going to get a medal.
