The Newfield HS Spartans Barbershop Chorus (aka Newfield’s Men’s Choir) had a fantastic trip to California! The Spartans sang in the International Youth Barbershop Chorus Festival presented by the Barbershop Harmony Society from Thursday, January 18th through Sunday, January 21st. The boys competed on Friday, January 19, 2018 and earned a bronze medal performing “She’s Gonna Love that Barbershop Song,” “What a Wonderful World,” and “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat.” The Spartans were among 20 choruses from across North America who took the stage in this tenth-annual event. It was held on the fabulous stage of the Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, California. They also sang in the Mass Chorus Ensemble of all of the Youth Choruses and the Westminster Barbershop Chorus.
Congratulations to the Newfield Spartans and their teacher Ms. Kristi Adams!
