Harmony Kings of Federal Way
This free workshop for ages 12-21 will be held at Our Saviors Baptist Church, 701 S 320th Street, on Saturday, May 20, at 10:30 AM. It is being led by a young quartet out of Southern California called NewFangled Four and will introduce students to a style of a cappella four part harmony. The NewFangled Four placed 11th in international competition last year, and four years ago won honors as the top collegiate barbershop quartet for the entire world.
Following the workshop, students will receive a free pizza lunch and are invited to watch the Annual Federal Way Harmony Kings show at 1:30 PM. At intermission, there will be a drawing for full scholarships to Harmony Explosion, an a cappella camp at Pacific Lutheran University in July.
This May 20 event will be a fun opportunity to participate in a cappella singing and learn the “Barbershop” style. There are over 30,000 members who belong to www.barbershop.org, including Deke Sharon, creator of Pitch Perfect and Sing-Off, and Avi Kaplan of Pentatonix.
The Federal Way Harmony Kings, sponsor of this free workshop, hope to promote this style to a younger generation.
