BLOOMER — On September 19, 2017 the Dunn County Barbershoppers held their 42nd Annual Bloomer Bash Quartet Showcase in Bloomer, WI.

It was a night of harmonizing in 4 part a cappella singing, quartets that the guys had randomly formed. It was pretty exciting to have 20 out of 28 active chapter members plus 2 non-members, perform in various quartets. Some of the singers even decided to perform out of their element, learning a voice part that they don’t normally sing.

The judging was close, but Judge Bruce Odell decided on three (3) quartet ribbon winners.

• 1st Place “Delta Force Quartet”: Pat Hogan, Eau Claire; Dan Heike, Mondovi; Andy Heren, Eau Claire; and Phil Schector, Eau Claire.

• 2nd Place “The Next Quartet” Gary Johnson, Menomonie; Phil Schector, Eau Claire; Neil Segerstrom, Mondovi; and Craig Schultz, Colfax.

• 3rd Place “Apple Orchard Quartet” Pat Hogan, Eau Claire; Neil Segerstrom, Mondovi; Wilbur Hoppe, Eau Claire; and Craig Schultz, Colfax.

The Dunn County Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society is welcoming men of all ages to visit us as guests. Chapter rehearsals are open to the public and invite all men who enjoy singing to join the Dunn County Chapter and experience a variety activities in a cappella singing. Weekly rehearsals are on Tuesdays beginning at 7:00 pm in the Colfax Lutheran Church basement, 600 Balsam St., Colfax, WI.

A great musical experience in 4-part a cappella harmony, a great community service, great fellowship and fun!
