Storyline

Every year thousands compete in the world's greatest singing competition - that you've never heard of. AMERICAN HARMONY journeys deep into the ultra-obsessive, zany, and heartfelt world of competitive barbershop singing, where passion is equaled only by raw talent, and the reward is not fame or fortune, but simply victory. The film focuses on four quartets vying to win the International Championships of Barbershop Singing, in what turns out to be the closest and most controversial victory in its 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 who that has been together for 30 years. In total, fifty quartets duke it out for the coveted gold medal, while facing the pressures of quartet life - from big egos to brain cancer and everything in between. Written by Colin King Miller

Totally Awesome!
18 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As their trailer says "It's the greatest singing competition - you've never heard of." Each year, quartets from around the world compete for the gold medal and the right to be called the best in barbershop.

If you have ever heard a barbershop competition you know what a blast it is. If not, this movie will show you what you have been missing all these years. These are consummate showmen. They are incredibly entertaining and the sound is unequaled.

It has won several Film Festival awards this year including one best documentary award and a silver medal.

This could be the next sleeper documentary hit. Unfortunately, it has not had good distribution yet.
