National Barbershop Quartet Day

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!

2018 Singing Valentines

Valentine’s day is right around the corner and North Front Sound knows just what you should do…  Order a Singing Valentine!  This is a fantastic experience for the one you love.  Just let us know the best place to find your sweetheart (preferably where there are lots of people around as it adds to the fun) and a barbershop quartet will deliver a rose, a customized message from you and a serenade.

This is something your Valentine will truly remember.  Order now in our shop or by clicking here.

BHS Rocky Mountain District 2017 Convention – Oct 6-8

North Front Sound is proud to be participating in the 2017 District Convention for the Rocky Mountain District of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  The convention will take place Oct 6-8 at the Zermatt Resort in Midway, Ut.

As a new chorus (and we are working to be the newest chapter in the society by the convention start) we will be the official mic testers for the chorus, receive feedback from the convention judges, and get our first real experience participating at a BHS event.

In addition to the mic testing, you will find many of us volunteering in various capacities or even wandering the halls looking for an impromptu quartet opportunity.

Please come participate in the convention.  Additional information can be found on the Rocky Mountain District Website at https://rmdsing.org/district-convention-2017/
