Historic Carnegie Hall is known worldwide as one of America’s most prestigious concert venues for both classical and popular music. This year, it will host two superb barbershop concerts in the span of less than a month.
Lest there be any confusion, both are supported and promoted by the Barbershop Harmony Society. Both offer opportunities for Barbershoppers to sing on the famous stage, and both would make excellent entertainment during a holiday excursion to New York City. See individual stories for full details, but in brief:
