LATE BREAKING NEWS: THX CANCELLED
Triangle Harmony eXplosion, or THX, is cancelled as of late Thursday, March 11, 2020 in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. The principal of Daniels Middle School, in conjunction with the District and RTP Chapter Youth & Outreach team, determined that cancellation was the appropriate course of action at this time. You will be advised here of future plans for rescheduling this event.
THX is a full day of musical fun and excitement for middle and high school students from throughout Wake County in North Carolina. After a full day of breakout sessions in vocal technique, performance skills, and barbershop harmony demos, THX will culminate in a late afternoon concert featuring not only our attending students, but also headlining will be the quartet “Forecast” and the “Brunswick Bellas”, South Brunswick High School’s a cappella ladies extraordinaire.
We are extremely excited that Dr. Kenneth Tice will be spearheading this year’s THX. Dr. Tice is the current Director of the RTP Chapter and Oak City Sound. He has almost twenty years of choral conducting and music education experience and brings a uniquely enjoyable approach and personality to his conducting. Joining us this year and serving as our Teaching Quartet is Carolinas District’s own “Forecast“. Travis Murray, Tyler Rackley, Kevin Jones, and Mike Fitch join together to form this award winning quartet. Forecast is 2019’s 1st Place Champion of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Harmony Sweepstakes and 2nd Place Finalist in the National Harmony Sweepstakes competition. Also bringing us their wonderful barbershop and pop a cappella sound, the “Brunswick Bellas”. You may remember their debut at the 2019 Fall Festival in North Charleston, SC.
THX will feature a full day of professional voice and performance coaching for our attending students, and will include barbershop harmony demonstrations from some of the best talent in the Carolinas.
