It is a cruise of a life time for the Fort Dodge Harmony Brigade as they present “70 Years On The High C’s” on April 8th at the Fort Dodge Middle School located at 800 North 32nd Street in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Performances will be at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.

The show will take you on the cruise ship USS Harmony as the members get ready to sail on a Hawaiian cruise in celebration of 70 years of barbershop harmony in Fort Dodge. The program is sprinkled with some slap stick humor along with favorite songs such as “It’s A Good Day”, “Shenandoah”, “Beer Barrel Polka”, “Yesterday”, “You’re 16 You’re Beautiful And Your Mine”, “Sweet Caroline”, “What A Wonderful World”, “Jump Shout Boogie”, and so many more favorites.

Guest quartets for this year’s program include 2016 Quartet Finalist Quorum, 2016 Quartet Semi Finalist The Newfangled Four and a very special group called Vintage Mix.

Quorum is a new and exciting four part A Cappella ensemble. Though their repertoire is primarily in the barbershop style, their collective musical backgrounds in pop, A Cappella, jazz, theatre, and opera combine to give audiences a unique and exciting musical experience.

The Newfangled Four is a barbershop quartet out of Southern California and represents the Westminster, Santa Fe Springs, and Las Vegas Chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The quartet recently showed up on Hallmark Channel USA's Home & Family crooning some Valentine's Day classics.

Quadruplets and only 16 years old make up the Vintage Mix. The four siblings all enjoy the same music and blend harmony together as only siblings can.

Vintage Mix will also be hosting workshops on Friday, April 7th for the High School Students in the morning and then Middle School Students in the afternoon. The workshop will highlight A Cappela and Barbershop singing along with practice and excellent training tips for the youth.
