Harmony Brigade Set for Tomorrow
The Sandhills area once again has the opportunity to enjoy a musical presentation by the 140-man, North Carolina Harmony Brigade, which is coming to the Owens Auditorium, Saturday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m.
The N.C. Harmony Brigade is composed of barbershop quartet singers from every corner of this state and from New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. This is the 18th year they have made their annual pilgrimage to Southern Pines for a jam fest weekend of singing acappella barbershop-style music.
Although it is called "barbershop vocal harmonizing," which has its roots in the first half of the last century, today many of its songs are arranged from composers such as Billy Joel and the Beatles.
"Those familiar tunes encompass a wide age range of styles and make for a great night of beautiful close harmonizing," says a spokesman. "You can kick back and listen to the resonant sounds that a 140-man chorus of accomplished quartet singers can produce."
The featured quartet is this years five-state, Dixie District Champions, "Let's Sing."
"The N.C. Harmony Brigade chooses Moore County as a place to meet because it also is the home of the Golf Capital Chorus, our local barbershop choral group, that over many years has earned a loyal following here," says the spokesman.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Arts Council of Moore Co. The Country Bookshop, Little River Golf Resort or from Bob Tweed at (910) 295-3199, Bob Boone at (910) 715-1458 or Larry Harter at (910) 295-3529. Tickets will also be available at the door.
