The Virginians had 3 participants, Mike Geipel, Joey Candrilli and Jerry Candrilli at the North Carolina Harmony Brigade at Pinehurst Resort in NC. It was a weekend of Extreme Quartetting where they purchased 12 top-level arrangements and had 5 months to learn and perform their parts. But not just learn them, they had to be prepared to sing in a quartet on all 12 songs upon arrival! This is an annual event that is part of the Harmony Brigades that happen all over the country and now in Berlin and the UK!
In addition to performing for a very enthusiastic local audience on Saturday night, there is a random quartet contest that all 130 guys participate in. Mike's quartet, "Vocal Concussion", won 3rd place!
Mike and Jerry are already members of the NCHB. Joey applied for the Chuck Greene Memorial Scholarship for young men between 18 - 28 years old and was accepted! The scholarship, which is funded by the NCHB members pays for the recipients participation expenses. It was a fantastic weekend!
