The new Harmony Foundation Youth Barbershop Quartet Contest dominated day one of Nashville International Convention. The Quartet Contest was held in the Schermerhorn Symphony Centre, one of the most beautiful and acoustically perfect locations ever to host a BHS International event.
Pratt Street Power (MAD), 82.0% won gold from 29 contestants.
On the day there was a mere 2.2 percentage points separating 5th place bronze from gold. Other top five finishers were: 2nd (Silver) – Flightline (FWD), 81.6%; 3rd (Bronze) – The Mission (BHNZ), 81.3%; 4th (Bronze) – Ohana Means Family (DIX), 80.7%; and 5th (Bronze) –Frontier (PIO), 79.8%.
Our Australian quartets did well. Blindside 8th, 78.9%, Skyline 15th, 74.6%, and The Grand Angus 18th, with 73.6%
Congratulations to our youth for taking on the best on the international stage.
