Local Foursome Among Favorites at 2008 International Barbershop Competition
Stone Mountain Barbershop Chorus Best in Barbershop Harmony since 1980

A quartet of members from the local Stone Mountain Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society is considered to be among the top contenders in the world at the upcoming 2008 International Barbershop Convention in Nashville, TN, in early July. State Line Grocery, formed in July 2003, captured the Dixie District Quartet Championship on their first attempt in October that same year.

The popular foursome, Dylan Oxford of Loganville (tenor), Tim Brooks of Grayson (lead), Drew McMillan of Kennesaw (bass) and Mark Lamback of Marietta (baritone), earned the right to represent the Dixie District at the International Conventions in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. Most recently, they earned the 4th place bronze medal at the 2007 International Convention in Denver, CO.

Fans of barbershop harmony can enjoy State Line Grocery as they headline the 2008 Stone Mountain Chorus Spring Concert “Harmony on the Range" for one performance only on Saturday, May 31, 2008, at 3:00 PM in the sanctuary of Mountain Park United Methodist Church. The church is located at 1405 Rockbridge Road in Stone Mountain. Doors will open at 2:00 PM.

The 65-man Stone Mountain Chorus promises to thrill the audience with close, four-part harmony in the barbershop style. The show will feature performances by several of the chapter quartets as well as inspirational and patriotic selections performed by the entire chorus.

General admission tickets for this performance are $12.00 if purchased in advance. A special advanced purchase discount price of $10.00 is available for full time students, groups of 12 or more and senior adults 60 and over. All tickets purchased at the door will be $15.00, cash or check only.

Tickets may be purchased from any Stone Mountain Chorus member or may be requested by calling the chorus information line at 770-978-8053. Advanced purchases can also be made using VISA, MasterCard or Discover charge cards.
