For years quarteting has been the heart of barbershop singing. Many consider quartet singing to be the purest expression of Barbershop Singing. Our chapter regularly includes quartet singing in our rehearsals and performances.
At present our chapter has two affiliated quartets, Handsome Reward and The Glen Echoes. Each affiliated quartet has at least one member who is a member of the chapter. Our two current quartets each have two members from Harmony Express.
Sometimes quartets are formed for specific occasions, such as our Annual Show, or for other special occasions.
Handsome Reward was founded on February 2012. Their members are John Reece (tenor), Mike Edison (lead), Mike Gilmore (bass) and Vince Lynch (baritone). More info is available at the Handsome Reward Facebook Page.
