SYNOPSIS

Every year, thousands compete in the world's greatest singing competition that you've never heard of. At the International Championships of Barbershop Singing, passion is equaled only by raw talent, and the reward is not fame or fortune, but simply victory.

American Harmony focuses on four quartets in the ultra-obsessive, zany, and heartfelt world of competitive barbershop singing. Each team is vying for top honors in what turns out to be the closest and most controversial victory in the competition s 70-year history. Max Q is the heavy favorite - a superstar quartet comprised of former Champions. Looking to upset them is OC Times (The Heart-Throbs), Vocal Spectrum (The Rookies) and Reveille, an aging foursome that has been performing together for 30 years. This fascinating documentary captures all the behind-the-scenes drama of quartet life from big egos to brain cancer and all the glory that comes with competing simply out of love of the game.

Highly recommended for anyone considering a career in performing arts. This movie follows several barbershop harmony quartets as they compete to win the annual International gold medal. This singing style has been around for over 75 years - and though current televised singing competitions can attempt it, they just can't match the sound of a locked in harmony chord. These guys sing tight harmony without instruments to back them up or 'autotune' electronics to correct pitch. These guys are the real deal! The groups are the best of the best from college age youngsters to retirees. Being scored on a standard point system by a panel of judges on song arrangement, presentation, and sound quality is a nerve wracking experience and this film captures the tension on stage and backstage as they wait to hear the awards announced.

It was exciting to watch the "must-see music documentary of the year", American Harmony. For anyone that is interested in barbershop and/or a cappella singing, this DVD is for you! The documentary follows all the behind-the-scenes drama of four different barbershop quartets that are competing at the International level for an opportunity to attain gold! The results are, at times, very close as well as controversial. A bass from one of the quartets expressed his opinion: 2nd place is still 2nd place!

As a musician and Barbershopper for many years, I'm always looking for ways that the general public can see what music and singing are all about, what it really means to people, and how exciting it can be! This movie certainly accomplishes that goal.

It most follows three quartets through the film as it takes you on a tour of the world of barbershop harmony - 4-part close harmony a cappella singing. You get to see what the Barbershop Harmony Society is really all about, and the fellowship and brotherhood felt between guys all over the world, who only have one thing in common: they sing, and they love it! You also get a closer look into the dynamics of singing in a quartet, where four guys can start out at singers and wind up lifelong friends. Finally, you get a peak at what barbershop harmony really sounds like - not the old-timey sound you heard in the 50's, but the new exciting chords, rhythms, and songs. You hear what power four voices can actually have, despite having no accompanying instruments or drums.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn about barbershop or the Society, anyone who wants to share the love and joy of singing with anyone else, and, well, anyone who loves to sing! It's a great representation of the society, but also a fantastic look into music and singing and how it can change your life in so many ways!

I watched this due to a recommendation from a friend. It's outstanding, and actually quite touching (which was unexpected). I come from a band background and had virtually no interest in barbershop until I saw the film.
