New Barbershop Champs Vocal Spectrum

It was a very close call between 1st and 2nd place at the International Barbershop Competition on Saturday night but Missouri-based Vocal Spectrum took top honors and are the latest International Barbershop Champions. The quartet members are Tim Waurick (Tenor), Chris Hallam (Bass), Eric Dalbey (Lead) and Jonny Moroni (Baritone) and are part of the Ambassadors of Harmony chorus. The rest of the top ten winners are 2 -Max Q, 3 - OC Times, 4 - Metropolis, 5 - Flipside, 6 - Wheelhouse, 7 - Saturday Evening Post, 8 - State Line, 9 -MatriX, 10 - Storm Front.

International chorus champs for the 11th time is of course The Vocal Majority from Dallas Texas. Their dominance of the competition is a wonderful achievement I'm sure but one does hear grousing from other choruses that their involvement in the event becomes an effort in futility when up against a chorus that wins every time they are eligible to compete.
