Legendary vocal group comes to barbershop convention
One of the most influential singing groups of all time will be coming to Jacksonville for the Midwinter Convention in January 2020. In addition to a featured concert performance, this accomplished ensemble will conduct special workshops for the Next Generation Barbershop Junior Chorus Festival.
The Four Freshmen have been America’s most enduring vocal group for over 70 years. Originally founded as a barbershop quartet called Hal’s Harmonizers in 1948, The Four Freshmen deliver a world of music that will take listeners back to the bygone era of their youth while introducing others to a brand of vocal harmony entertainment unique to the legendary Four Freshmen. Their sound has influenced many ensembles over the years including The Manhattan Transfer, Take 6, and the Beach Boys.
Today’s ensemble consists of highly educated, musically diverse young men who not only preserve The Freshmen sound, they enhance it with their youth, vitality, and talent, giving new treatments to the Great American Songbook.
A Four Freshmen concert is one you will never forget! From the moment they step on stage, The Four Freshmen will get your heart pounding and your feet moving.
