The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development takes note of the aspirations we have for our home in Nashville:
Everyone knows Nashville as “Music City.” That famous moniker undoubtedly conjures up the sounds of country music or maybe even gospel, bluegrass, classical or rock for which the city is renowned. But did you know those sounds also include the four-part a capella harmonies of barbershop music?
The international headquarters of The Barbershop Harmony Society are located in downtown Nashville just steps away from the city’s most famous musical venues. Relocating from Kenosha, Wisconsin in 2007, the organization chose Nashville as part of a strategic plan to gain direct access to the city’s legendary music industry and its strong pool of educated professional staff.
