Power Quartetting

It was more than just another great weekend of chord ringing and fellowship for me. It provided a much needed charge to my barbershop battery.

What Is Power Quartetting?

You are a singer who has registered to be a part of a Power Quartetting weekend. You got the music and the learning tracks six months or more before the event, and you worked hard to learn your part on six arrangements in order to sing them in quartets.

When the weekend of the event arrives you show up at the venue on Friday evening and begin to meet the other participants, top singers from all over the area. The evening is spent reviewing the six songs and singing them in various quartet combinations with people that perhaps you've never met before. Some of those not singing give you helpful feedback.

On Saturday the morning and early afternoon are spent alternating between singing the songs in various quartets and rehearsing with the full group in preparation for an evening show/contest. Later in the afternoon the draw takes place for you to be assigned to a quartet and a song chosen at random. During the remaining time you rehearse that song with your "quartet".

In the evening show and informal contest between the randomly-selected quartets is held and the audience chooses a winner. The group sings all six songs as a chorus under the direction of one of the participants, and a featured (real) quartet closes out the show with a package. Then everyone is invited to an "afterglow" at a local pizza place to eat, sing songs, tags, and get to know these new friends. You can't wait for next year's event, with six new songs.
