Saturday, March 24, 2018: Downtown Crossing and Timepiece (A Capella Quartets)
Civic Music offers a double bill of young energetic a capella quartets. Downtown Crossing, the 2013
Barbershop Harmony Society Northeastern District Champions (a district including all of NY State), has
competed internationally. The members have a passion for entertaining and they love to get the audience
involved, whether on stage or on the MTA, where lucky riders have heard them in action. Timepiece,
another charismatic young foursome, pays homage to the quartets and the chord-ringing of barbershop
antiquity, dating from the first half of the 20th century. In 2014 Timepiece won the BHS Northeastern
District Quartet Championship. In 2015 the group was named audience favorite at the national finals of the
Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival.
