Frontier Quartet has been singing together since March 2015, and is the 2018 International Next Generation Varsity Quartet Champions and 18th place semifinalist quartet in the open contest. The members of the quartet come from different musical backgrounds and expertise after singing with numerous other quartets through their early years in the Barbershop Harmony Society. The quartet took 9th place in the 2015 Collegiate Barbershop Quartet Contest in Pittsburgh, PA after securing the district college qualifier in April of that year. In October 2015, the young men each attained a lifelong dream together when they each captured their first Pioneer District Championship in Kalamazoo, Michigan. In July 2016, the quartet achieved their highest overall score in the first annual international youth quartet contest and secured a fifth place medal, a first for the Pioneer district. In 2017, the quartet took 6th place in the international youth quartet contest and 35th in the world in their very first open contest. Frontier won the Next Generation Varsity Quartet competition and took 18th in the open contest in Orlando, FL. Frontier is the first quartet from the Pioneer District to win the youth quartet competition.
Frontier’s members came together while singing with The Voice youth barbershop chorus, which promotes youth in harmony and general music education for young male singers across the state of Michigan. The group attributes their success to the love, encouragement and generosity of the Pioneer District. They love to make incredible music wherever they can and aim to cultivate the next generation of young barbershop singers. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org with any inquiry or show opportunities.
