On April 21st, Boston area music lovers will have the opportunity to hear some of the best 4 part a cappella harmony being sung in the United States today.
International championship quartet REALTIME, from Vancouver , British Columbia will headline the Sounds of Concord annual show at Lexington
High School in Lexington , Massachusetts . The show is hosted by the Sounds of Concord, a 30-Man a cappella group currently ranked as the top Barbershop chorus in Massachusetts .
REALTIME has just won the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival Pacific Northwest regional competition, and will be competing in San
Francisco this May against other regional winners for the national title.
