      better yet! The quartet mentioned below was assembled last week.
      We are honored and thrilled to do this, and hope to do the Society
      proud!

      Happy Holidays!

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
      Barbershop Quartet tapped to perform the National Anthem at the
      Insight Bowl


      Tempe, Arizona. (Dec. 27, 2007)----The Barbershop Harmony Society
      Quartet Foresight will bring their All-American style of harmony
      singing to the Valley of the Sun when they perform the National
      Anthem at the 19th Annual Insight Bowl at Sun Devil Stadium in
      Tempe, Arizona on Monday, December 31st. The four Arizona based

      long standing football tradition to perform in front of an expected

      The musical art form of barbershop singing is preserved through the
      Barbershop Harmony Society's mission of enriching lives through
      singing and through its dedication towards preserving music in our
      schools and communities. Washington Post columnist, John Kelly is
      quoted as saying, "Barbershop singing, a quintessentially American
      form of close harmony, is like aural honeyÂ…. The sound sets the air
      vibrating and tickles the ear like a cat tongue licking your cheek."


      The Insight Bowl will be aired on the NFL Network channel at 3:30 PM
      Arizona Time.
