This is a great opportunity for high school singers to participate in a competition for unaccompanied foursomes. It provides an environment for students to develop stronger singing skills and improve their ability to tune to the other singing parts. Participants also receive valuable assessments of their performances by judges from the Barbershop Harmony Society. In addition, experienced barbershoppers are available to coach quartets as they select and prepare their songs.


Last year, the "Knightingales" from Irondale (at right) took top honors. Who will win this year?
