Chapter Quartets

For years, “quarteting” has been the heart of Barbershop Singing; many consider quartet singing to be the purest expression of the art.  Harmony Express regularly includes ad hoc quartet singing in our rehearsals and performances.

Harmony Express forms quartets for specific occasions, such as our Annual Show, Singing Valentines, Singing Birthdays, and other special occasions. For information on quartet availability, please complete Contact Us.

We also have one affiliated quartet, The Glen Echoes.  An affiliated quartet has at least one member who is a member of the chapter. See below for more information on The Glen Echoes.



The Glen Echoes

The Glen Echoes is an a capella, close-harmony quartet featuring Al Blount singing Bass, Richard Cook singing Lead, Mike Holmes singing Tenor, and Ken Sleeman singing Baritone. Al and Richard are members of Harmony Express.

The Glen Echoes is currently accepting bookings for performances at locations in the Washington, DC area. They specialize in romantic occasions such as birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries. Please email Richard Cook  for more information or contact him by phone at (240) 855-2695.
