Not to be outdone, Storm Front placed third in the Quartet Contest and three other chapter quartets did very well!
Ignition! placed 12th, Nexus placed 19th, and Mojo placed 26th.

Sound of the Rockies will join the Notre Dame Glee Club for an evening of spectacular
a cappella harmony in a benefit concert for the Ara Parseghian Medical
This is the chance of a lifetime to see two of the best men's a cappella choruses in the world together in the same concert. Both groups will perform separately and then will join voices - over 160 strong - for several numbers.
The Notre Dame Glee Club is recognized as one of the finest all-male collegiate choral groups in the country and has a rich history of singing and brotherhood spanning the last ninety-two years. More than 2,000 young men have sung with the Club over the years, combining the rich traditions of Notre Dame with the highest standards of artistic excellence. The Glee Club has toured from coast to coast and around the world, and performs over one hundred concerts a year.
Ara Parseghian was the legendry Notre Dame football coach from 1964-1974 (Ara's Era) compiling a 95-17-4 record. He founded the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation after losing three grandchildren to the neurodegenerative disease, Niemann-Pick Type C (Listen to Ara Parseghian's invitation to the Sounds of Hope Concert).
