The Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival is the premier American showcase for vocal harmony music. The annual national competition draws from hundreds of vocal groups from around the country with regional competitions in eight cities. The winning group from each festival is flown to perform in front of celebrity judges and a sold out house of enthusiastic a cappella fans at the National Finals.
New England’s award-winning barbershop chorus
|We are one of New England's premier a cappella performing groups and have won multiple adjudicated contests. Since chartering in 1970 as Sounds of Concord, our chorus has constantly remained dedicated to its mission of Moving Audiences and Enriching Lives Through Musical Excellence.
Our members come from all over the Greater Boston area and beyond. Many of our members are very dedicated; some drive a long distance on Thursday nights to sing with us. Our informal slogan is "Is it Thursday yet?". Our rehearsals typically involve a fair amount of work, but the results are sometimes magnificent.
Members are expected to do their homework and to show up prepared to sing and perform without holding sheet music or iPads. We do not hold music in performance so the ability to memorize is important. So is the ability to perform....we are singer/actors, not just singers.

The Somerville Theatre, part of the Hobbs Building in the heart of Davis Square, was built in 1914 and designed for stage shows, vaudeville, opera, and that new fad - motion pictures -the theatre was only one of the Hobbs Building attractions, which also included a basement café; bowling alley and billiards hall; ten ground floor storefronts; and the Hobbs Crystal Ballroom on the second floor.
