Vocal Revolution Quartets
Sincere. Original. Silly. Theatrical. Hungry. These are all words that are often used to describe Daily Special.
Daily Special is an a cappella vocal quartet based in southern New England. They have performed everywhere from schools, churches, and assisted living facilities to high-profile, professional concert venues. The members of Daily Special take pride in their goal of being model citizens of the a cappella world, sharing their music and leadership skills with their communities.
Always striving for musical excellence, they have won numerous accolades including:
40th place, 2019 International Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) International Quartet Championship
1st place, 2019 BHS Northeastern District (NED) Championship
2nd place, 2018 Boston Regional Harmony Sweepstakes a cappella competition
NED Patriot Division 1st Place Champions, 2018
Two “audience favorite” awards for "best ballad" in 2017 and 2018
Duly Noted formed in June of 2018 after searching around multiple places to find the people. Paul had an idea, found Bill, then they both searched all over the Northeast for a Tenor and Baritone. They found Craig in NH and Steve in Lowell.
Duly Noted loves to sing and has been rehearsing at a Senior Center and sharing the full learning process with those who like to come listen. We love songs from the Big Band era as well as traditional Barbershop songs from the turn of the century. The quartet is considered a senior's quartet, which just means that we've been around for a while.
Each of us has been singing barbershop for different times: Craig at 3 years, Paul at 31 years, Bill - 38 years, and Steve is at 42 years. Paul sings the bass part in our quartet because he can, Steve sings tenor because he does it better than anyone else in the quartet and Bill sings lead because he cannot sing the harmony parts. Craig sings baritone because he is the most intelligent and musically talented member of the quartet, or so he tells us. The quartet is very proud of its top 10 finish in the 2019 Northeastern District Competition.
Have Voices Will Travel
Have Voices Will Travel (HVWT) is a longstanding barbershop quartet founded in 2004.
Over the years HVWT has performed at many and various events including Vocal Revolution concerts, retirement community concerts, birthday parties, Christmas parties, Singing Valentines and Lexington Pops Chorus concerts. All of HVWT are members of the Vocal Revolution chorus in the Barbershop Harmony Society. HVWT currently has six members so that the quartet can fulfill gigs in spite of busy schedules.
Formed in Dec 2017, Neapolitan Quartet features Anand Sitaram on Lead, Sarah McNamee on Tenor, Linda Noble on Baritone, and Ray Johnson on Bass. We are one of the first registered mixed quartets in the Northeastern District and were the first official mixed quartet champions in the district. We are proud to add to the diversity of barbershop harmony!
Synchrony formed early during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown as the Quarantunes, producing several virtual projects. They were all friends from the Lowell chapter but had never sung together as a quartet. Their first in-person rehearsal coming out of the lockdown was a wondrous experience that has not stopped giving. Re-branding as Synchrony to leave the "dark days" behind, they look forward to entertaining you. firstname.lastname@example.org
