Southern Gateway Chorus was featured on Fox 19 news recently as we were preparing for the International Barbershop Competition in Louisville the week of July 4th. See the news segment at

Southern Gateway competed with 34 choruses and our quartet members competed with 60 quartets. Singers were from eight countries. Here's coverage of the competition from Louisville

The Southern Gateway Chorus (SGC) placed in the top third in the Barbershop Harmony Society's International competition <on July 9, 2022 in Charlotte, NC.
37 choruses, out of 900 in the US and Canada, qualified to compete this year. Three quartets with SGC members, out of 48 quartets who qualified, competed this year.
There were no International competitions since 2019, due to the covid-19 pandemic, so this was a Barbershop Reunion.
