Did you miss Barbershop Revival last year?
This important outreach to young African American singers will return to NC Central University in Durham, March 27-28, 2020. Hold that date!
Visiting quartets will be HALO and International Quartet Champion Forefront! The Barbershop Revival will:
- Celebrate African American roots of barbershop harmony
- Introduce young singers in the African American community to barbershop
- Invite them to sing and experience barbershop
- Feature Master Classes and a Saturday night show
The Barbershop Revival is an ongoing project in Research Triangle, NC, intended to celebrate the African American roots of barbershop harmony and, to quote Harold Hicks, President & CEO, The National Museum of African American Music, our goal is to “re-establish the historical links between Barbershop Harmony and African American Musical traditions. It is a Youth Outreach project aimed primarily at the three Historically Black Colleges (HBCUs) in the Research Triangle area. We view this project as a restoration of a cultural heritage to its founders.
Contact Warren Fuson with questions or to sign up to volunteer. Registration will be opening soon.
