"A Capella Sounds of the Seacoast"
Friday, December 6th
Second Floor Woman's Clubroom
The Usual Suspects Quartet
Acapella QuartetThe quartet is a women's a cappella quartet comprised of four unusually suspicious women who all belong to Sounds of the Seacoast Chorus of Harmony Incorporated. The Portsmouth-based Sounds of the Seacoast women's a cappella chorus is a diverse group of over 40 women all ages and walks of life from many communities throughout the greater Seacoast area. The group performs at a number of outdoor festivals and special functions throughout the year. They also host their own annual concert every spring and a Christmas Cabaret in December. Founded in 1978, and in keeping with the style of barbershop music (unaccompanied, four-part a cappella harmony), the Sounds of the Seacoast Chorus enjoys singing and performing a variety of music from standards to gospel songs to more modern pieces.
Sounds of the Seacoast also enjoys traveling to and competing at two contests each year -- Area in the spring and International in the fall -- as a member of Harmony, Inc., a larger International organization of women barbershop singers devoted to the education and promotion of acappella singing in four-part harmony known as barbershop.
Watch the entire Sounds of the Seacoast Group perform in 2008.
