Harmony Brigade Performs
The North Carolina Harmony Brigade is once again bringing more than 130 male barbershop a cappella-style voices to Moore County to perform.
The concert will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, at Owens Auditorium on the campus of the Sandhills Community College.
This will be the 18th consecutive year the NCHB has chosen Moore County as its site to meet and stage its annual rally, which begins on Friday afternoon and culminates with the big concert Saturday evening.
The organization was born out of individuals from state chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society, an organization that promotes close harmony, a cappella singing both nationally and internationally.
Although the NCHB is primarily composed of state chapter representatives, the popularity of the organization has increased to the point where accomplished performers from across the country come for the nonstop singing weekend.
"There is even one member who travels from Sweden to participate in the weekend activities and perform with his 'Svedish Meat Ball Quartet' at the Saturday evening performance," says a spokesman.
One of the popular featured quartets that will be performing is "Quadzilla," which has performed for ceremonies at state professional sports events and for National Public Radio programs. Their upbeat fast-paced songs have entertained audiences here for the last several years.
Tickets can be purchased at the Arts Council of Moore County, Little River Golf Resort, and The Country Bookshop. Seating begins at 6:15 p.m.
