2000 Mid-Atlantic Regional: Second Place
A male group of seven that started in 1996 when a bunch of guys got together to serenade their "female friends" the night before high school graduation in Bucks County, PA. They specialize in classical, pop-contemporary, doo-wop, and barbershop. What is amazing about this group right now is that they all attend different colleges.
2000 Mid-Atlantic Regional: Third Place
A recently formed mixed quartet from south-central Pennsylvania, they specialize in preserving the songs of the big band era, but also cut across genre lines and enjoy presenting many types of music. Crossroads uses entertainment value as a litmus test in selecting their music. They are all consummate "group" singers, each with many years of experience singing in barbershop quartet and chorus champions.
