The Newfangled Four is a barbershop quartet based in sunny Southern California. Formed in the fall of 2012, this foursome quickly bonded through their involvements with the Westminster Chorus and Masters of Harmony, two well-renowned choruses in the Barbershop Harmony Society. In 2013 they won the Collegiate contest and since then keep on entertaining the audiences with a variety of arrangements and often funny interpretations. Please click here for a Youtube example. In 2016 they placed 11th in the BHS Internationals.

Fabruary 2017: New contest part of BMF 2018

The BinG! board is happy to announce that for the first time in barbershop history there will be a world mixed championships for quartets and choruses at the BMF2018 in Munich.
As the BMF has already been home to the world mixed competitions for quartets it was just a small step to include mixed choruses as well. Especially since a lot of Barbershoppers from around the world asked for such a platform for quite some time.

All relevant information on rules, qualification and planning will be available here from March 2017.
