A Cappella Groups From High Country, Triad Celebrate Singing at Boone United Methodist Church Nov. 3

Oct. 29, 2012. The Watauga County Arts Council will sponsor Celebrate Singing on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. at the Boone United Methodist Church, located at 471 Market St., Boone. The event will feature a number of singing styles and groups from the Triad and the High Country. Included will be the Triad Harmony Express men’s barbershop chorus from Winston-Salem, Treble Attraction women’s group from Appalachian State University, the Mountainaires Quartet, the 5th Edition Quartet, and Easy Livin’ Quartet. 

This is the 32nd year that Triad Harmony Express has entertained at a fall show in Boone. They have a new package of familiar tunes that the whole family can enjoy. Treble Attraction has been organized at ASU for the past six years as an a cappella group that provides a variety of musical stylings including sacred music and popular songs. The Mountainaires barbershop quartet has been entertaining in the High Country for 33 years, including a featured role in the local 1993 stage production of The Music Man and in August of this year in the concert version. The 5th Edition Quartet has performed for various events in the area since 2007, providing close harmony using novel musical arrangements.

Easy Livin’ Quartet is part of the chorus from Winston-Salem and provides an entertaining change of pace with four-part harmony.
