Sing in the YBQC 25th Reunion Chorus!

YBQC-Logo-VegasBranded-25th_v5 25 years? Can you believe it?

Whether you knew it as the CQC or CBQC or YBQC, the Youth Barbershop Quartet Contest is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this summer in Las Vegas, and we want you to sing in a special Reunion Chorus.

If you have ever sung in a youth quartet that participated in the program, come catch up with old friends and ring some chords on the stage of the incredible Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood. The Reunion Chorus will open the second half of the chorus contest on Friday, July 7, so this will be a great stage experience.

Mike O’Neill (Station 59, 1999 winner) will direct, and Pratt Street Power (2016 YBQC champ) will be your section leaders. The chorus will sing to great titles: “Fare Thee Well, Love,” arranged by David Wright; and in honor of Keepsake’s 25th anniversary, “When The Saints Go Marching In,” arranged by Greg Volk.
