|April 11 is National Barbershop Quartet Day, celebrating the 1938 founding of the Barbershop Harmony Society on the rooftop of the Tulsa Club.|
HOW TO OBSERVE #BarbershopQuartetDay
- Do you have the pipes to harmonize with a quartet? Join a barbershop organization near you. Lend them your voice! You never know who you will meet or whose life you might impact with your music.
- Attend a barbershop event. They host performances throughout the year and provide excellent (often humorous) entertainment, too!
- Learn more about the history of the barbershop quartet. Read Four Parts, No Waiting by Gage Averill, or watch the documentary American Harmony directed by Aengus James.
- Use #BarbershopQuartetDay to post on social media.
- Educators, visit the National Day Classroom for more information designed for the classroom.
