Celebrate National Barbershop Quartet Day – April 11
National Barbershop Quartet Day commemorates the birth of the organized barbershop movement on April 11, 1938, when 26 men gathered together at the invitation of Rupert Hall , the “Royal Keeper of the Minor Keys,” and O.C. Cash, “Third Assistant Temporary Vice Chairman” for a songfest. Subsequent gatherings snowballed, leading to the founding of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America, now known as the Barbershop Harmony Society. Organizations for women sprang up soon after, and in the following decades, a worldwide network of harmony singing societies spanned generations and tens of thousands of singers. (barbershop.org)
How to celebrate you ask? Find a group and sing!
Studies show that singing with a group helps to relieve stress, improve immunity and respiratory health, and builds social confidence and self esteem. So become a barbershopper. It is good for you!
Founded in 2014, North Front Sound is a men’s chorus dedicated to making great music and having a fantastic time doing it. Our main focus is on barbershop arrangements and traditions, but we love all music and you can find us singing any number of men’s choral pieces.
We meet in Kaysville, Utah and draw chorus members from the south end of the Salt Lake Valley up to Logan.
