The Vocal Majority Chorus has won the Barbershop Harmony Society International Chorus Contest today in Las Vegas.
With 158 North Texas area men on the competition stage, the chorus competed against 30 choruses from the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Sweden and New Zealand.
The chorus is under the direction of Greg Clancy, the son of long-time director Jim Clancy.
“The men of the Vocal Majority don’t sing for a living, they sing purely for the joy of making harmony and touching people’s lives,” said Greg Clancy. “The effort they put worth for this contest was monumental, and I feel proud and lucky to be a part of this world champion chorus.”
This most recent win is the 12th Gold Medal for the Vocal Majority since its start in Dallas in 1972. This latest win continues a record among over 800 choruses worldwide in the Barbershop Harmony Society and its affiliates.
