A Youth-In-Harmony Festival, bringing together high school students from throughout the district to learn more about the barbershop style of music, was held in conjunction with the convention. The 80 participants formed a chorus and performed to an appreciative audience of barbershoppers. Six area youth were members of the chorus. They included Madison Baker, Matt Beecher, Austin Cottrell, and Matt Schneider from Oshkosh, and William John and Dillon Moore from Brandon.
In the quartet competition with 24 groups participating, The Cheery-O’s, with Oshkosh ties, made the finals and finished in fourth place. The group includes Todd Oxley and his three sons, Nathan, Joshua, and Jacob.
