If I Ruled the World – International Collegiate Barbershop Quartet Contest, July 2015

In July 2015, we headed off to the International Collegiate Barbershop Quartet Contest in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Having worked harder than we ever had before, we went in as prepared as we could be. Knowing this would be our last collegiate contest as a foursome (with Chris aging out after this year), we took the day to ready ourselves one last time for this particular stage.

Interestingly, the singing order placed us directly between our good friends in Trocadero and ‘Shoptimus Prime (the eventual gold and silver medalists respectively). As our name was called to stage, we entered to an excited audience and began to sing. What followed was a performance that we will remember forever and a truly overwhelming ovation. This is that song.

It was an unforgettable experience, and an experience we hope to build on as we head towards the “big boys” contest in the coming years!

    Dear Yonge Guns,
    Thank you for being terrific and warm hearted! Your musicality, presence, and performance delighted both me and my three year old son, Jack. We got to take in your performance at Roy Thompson Hall both before the 2pm and the 4pm Symphony Spooktacular. My son loved it soooo much! He is still singing the Java Jive and demands the King Singers video of “the Train song on repeat so to learn it!” We hope to see you again soon! He is an avid fan and doesn’t understand why Siri doesn’t know who you are!

      Thank you kindly, Jen and Jack! We’re so glad you enjoyed our performance. We hope you’ll follow our adventures and join us the next time you’re available when we perform!

      Also, Jack, keep practicing singing the songs you love! The best singers do it all the time, and the happiest ones too! Maybe next time you can sing with us?
