We are excited to announce that the Thoroughbreds will be competing in a chorus competition for the first time since COVID. This year’s district competition will be held in Dayton Ohio and will be a hosted by both the Johnny Appleseed District and the Cardinal Convention.

District competitions and Barbershop competitions in general are a great way to experience what it means to be a Barbershop singer. This year’s event will hold Chorus contest and a quartet contest featuring some of the best groups on the East Coast. Between, during, after and well after you can expect to see and hear Barbershoppers roaming the convention halls singing tags with each other. Be sure to join in on the fun and see what Barbershop is all about!
