Congratulations, Vocal Spectrum!

In one of the tightest finishes in the competition's history, Vocal Spectrum of St. Charles, Missouri edged out the heavily favored Max Q to win the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Quartet Championship. The margin of victory (or loss, depending on your point of view) was a scant six points out of a possible 9000.

Two quartets from Southern California, OC Times and Metropolis, finished in third and fourth places respectively, while Salem, Oregon's Flipside rounded out the top five.

Vocal Spectrum, the sixth-place International finalist last year, becomes the second quartet to take International gold after first winning the Society's Collegiate Championship. The four young men from Lindenwood University were the Collegiate champs in 2004.

In the International Chorus Contest, Dallas's Vocal Majority narrowly topped Southern California's Westminster Chorus to claim their unprecedented 11th gold medal.

Kudos to all the competitors!

Hey, SwanShadow!

Brian Philbin from Metropolis - not sure who you are, but it turns out that we share two hobbies, quartetting and comics (I'm also a Jeopardy fan, so there's a chance that I saw you at some point). I regularly google the quartet to find out who says what and your blog page came up.

Please check out my comics web pages and tell me what you think ( I'm no good at Shockwave or Flash and my sites are very simple, but I prefer them to read like paper as much as possible.

I'm interested to E-mail with you a bit about comics.

Pax, harmonia,
