PR: The City of Portland, Maine, and specifically the Westbrook (ME) Performing Arts Center and the Portland Chapter “Downeasters” Chorus men and friends will once again host hundreds of barbershop singers from around the northeast for the annual fall convention of the Northeastern District of the Barbershop Harmony Society. More than just a weekend of singing four-part a cappella barbershop harmony, it is a weekend of serious competition for quartets and choruses from across New England, Western NY and Maritime Canada under the watchful eyes and ears of a panel of judges from across North America. Qualifying choruses from the weekend will advance to the Barbershop Harmony Society International Chorus Competition next July in Los Angeles, CA. Qualifying seniors quartets from the weekend will advance to the Barbershop Harmony Society Seniors Quartet Competition in January 2020 in Jacksonville, FL. Top scoring eligible men's, women's, mixed, and novice quartets win their respective Northeastern District titles for 2019.
