      More than 20 collegiate barbershop quartets square off in the finals
      of the 16th annual Bank of America Collegiate Barbershop Quartet
      Contest Saturday, July 7, 11 a.m. in the Pepsi Center.

      The event is held in conjunction with the 69th annual international
      convention of the Barbershop Harmony Society. This is the first time
      the convention will be held in Denver.

      Competing quartets will come from the USA, Canada, New Zealand and
      Australia. Many hope to follow in the footsteps of previous collegiate
      quartet winners Vocal Spectrum (2004) and Four Voices (1996), both of
      whom went on to best the "big boys" and win international men's
      quartet contests. Men In Black, 2007 Boston Harmony Sweepstakes
      Winners, won this contest in 2006.

      Like their counterparts in the Society's regular contest, these groups
      have come through qualifying competitions to earn a spot in the
      finals. Medals, trophies and bragging rights await the top five
      finishers. This year, New England will be represented by a foursome
      from UCONN called Storrs Four.

      The college quartet contest is judged under the same rules and
      criteria as regular Society quartets in international competition,
      however the collegiate quartet contest only has one round. The men's
      contest has three rounds.

      While it is unlikely that any of you will be heading out to Denver
      this weekend to watch the contest live, you CAN watch or listen the
      contest live on the web. The contest will begin on Saturday July 7th
      at 1 PM EST. Here is the web link for more info.

      Any Singers interested in participating in the contest next year
      should contact me. Any singer under the age of 25 is eligible.

      Happy Fourth to All!
