Documentary - American Harmony

Press Release

American Harmony, the documentary, had a very exciting and successful screening at the Barbershop Harmony Society’s 2008 International Convention in Nashville. Now the producers, Aengus James (who is also the writer/director) and Colin Miller, want to take itbeyond the barbershop devotees. The film, which is a tribute to the human musical spirit, is more than three years in the making and was edited by Kate Amend, the editor of two Oscar-winning documentaries.

The movie is an in-depth look at the amazingly rich subculture of a true American art form. It follows the lives of some of the biggest names to emerge from international competition in the Society’s history, as well as interviews with rank-and-file members, called “Joe Barbershoppers.” The film features four prominent Society quartets – OC Times, Max Q, Vocal Spectrum, and Reveille – over a span of years, on stage and at home, in their personal quests for international recognition as they experience the thrill of victory, and the agony of not quite making it. American Harmony received an enthusiastic reception from film distributors and other non-Society audiences.
