Bringing harmony home
- Forest Grove News-Times - Features
For the 61st year, strains of intricately harmonized vocals came alive last weekend during the Original All Northwest Barbershop Ballad Contest at Forest Grove High School.
Winner of the two-day competition was The Dean's List, whose members are from Portland and Vancouver, Wash. Runner-up was America's Most Wanted, from Silverdale and Poulsbo, Wash.
About 1,700 people showed up to hear 19 quartets sing out, said the event's general chairman, Don Paulson.
