Charlotte International Produces More Historics

Charlotte certainly was the convention to expand the already many historics of the BHS. How about the Mid Atlantic District becoming the sixth district to have posted three quartets to finish in the top five medals along with PIO, FWD, ILL, JAD, SUN? The Mid Atlantic may have also become the only district to have five quartets finish in the top 10!


Gary Lewis, of our new champs Quorum, has set the mark as the ONLY individual to have won three gold medals on three different voice parts (Platinum-tenor, MaxQ-baritone, and Quorum-bass).

That’s not all. Jay Hawkins now joins Freddie King and Brian Beck as the only three individuals to perform in international quartet competitions in six consecutive decades.
