Harmony Sweepstakes Finals report from THROAT
- Greetings, friends! Mister Tim here, from your 2011 Rocky Mountain
Harmony Sweepstakes champs THROAT.
We spent last weekend in San Rafael, CA with seven other AMAZING
regional Harmony Sweeps winners. We had a great time, made great
friends, and heard some great music... without a doubt, the strongest
field of groups I have ever seen at the HS Finals.
Congratulations to Emily Bedal of THROAT for winning the Best Original
Song Award for "Monsters, Animals," as she also did at the regional
We sang well and enjoyed ourselves, but ultimately the tastes of the
judges and audience favored the traditional, unlike last year when
Denver's own subversive a cappella trio Plumbers of Rome took home the
Champs: Da Capo, Barbershop quartet from the Mid-Atlantic regional
2nd: Vybration, contemporary group from L.A.
3rd: Brass Farthing, a bawdy Victorian drinking club from San Francisco
Audience Favorite: Da Capo
Best Arrangement: Vybration
To hear more great a cappella, be sure to get out to these upcoming shows:
Tues May 24 Plumbers of Rome and Wonder Voice at Rock N Soul Cafe
Fri May 27 2010 RMHS champs Confidential with THROAT and McPhly at
Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret
