Midtown formed in the spring of 2018 and quickly gained attention from the barbershop and A Cappella world.  After just 1 rehearsal, they won their first Mid Atlantic District Northern Division contest, and a few months later went on to win the Mid Atlantic District Quartet contest. That following spring they competed at their first prelims contest where they qualified for their first international competition. There, they walked away with a 5th place Bronze Medal and the Dealers Choice Award for the highest scoring first-time quartet. They’ve put most of their time and energy into making music videos and other forms of media to get their music and brand out to the world. Specializing in several different genres including barbershop, contemporary a Cappella, jazz, gospel, and musical theater. Based out of Manhattan NY and Orlando Florida, Midtown is eager to share their music with audiences all over the world and to bring a new flavor of 4-part harmony to the masses.

Hallmark of Harmony are the BABS 2019 Chorus Champions based in Sheffield, UK. They are an enthusiastic group of about sixty men who enjoy singing together in the four-part close-harmony barbershop style. Their main reason for singing is entertainment, both for their audiences and themselves, but they also take part in competitions from time to time. Over the years the chorus has enjoyed considerable success, winning the gold medal on seven occasions at the UK National Barbershop
Convention, most recently in 2019.

They are a group of ordinary men, who, with a fair amount of enjoyable hard work, and good coaching, have learned to sing well together. If you are interested in joining them please go and take a look. 

Hallmark’s approach can be summed up by the motto “Excellence with fun and Fun with excellence”.

Steel City Voices is a fresh and vibrant chorus based in Sheffield singing a cappella and barbershop music. Formed 3 years ago as a group of 8 friends who enjoyed singing together, it now has nearly 50 members. It is proud to be an inclusive and supportive chorus, welcoming those of all ages and musical abilities. They rehearse monthly, keeping rehearsals packed full of exciting things, achieving more in each session and meaning more people are able to attend.

Since March 2020 SCV have been meeting online but despite this they have gone from strength to strength, making the most of the virtual setting with international guests and online performances (SCV Live). They still managed to hold their yearly auditions online, and have been joined by members all over the country. As a chorus, SCV have produced several 'lockdown projects,' this has culminated in 'ONE' their debut EP.

Their EP, which is available to stream now, showcases a broad repertoire of songs consisting of three of their favourites, summing up the ethos of SCV. The chorus love performing together at gigs, particularly ones which support charities close to their hearts and they can't wait to get back out there performing after a long 18 months apart.
