Barbershop competition results

The term "International" has often been a term used as a reference to the Barbershop Harmony Competition but this year it really can be applied when not 1 but 2 non-American quartets finished in the top 10. Sweden's Ringmaster tied for 4th place while Musical Island Boys from New Zealand came 10th. But it was the seasoned veterans who won gold when "superquartet" Crossroads took top honors. All four members are previous gold medal winners - Jim Henry (bass) with The Gas House Gang, Brandon Gruyton (baritone) with Four Voices, Mike Slamka (lead) with Power Play and Fred Farrell (tenor) with 2nd Edition. Wow! Old School won silver and Storm Front took bronze.

The chorus competition was won with a record score by the St Charles, MO based Ambassadors of Harmony with The Vocal Majority winning silver and Great Northern Union taking bronze.
