Tenor, Micah Jeppesen; Lead, Mark Fortino; Baritone, Michael Troyer; and Bass, Brian Bellof, have a total of twelve district Quartet Championships between them and decades of International Barbershop Harmony Quartet competition experience. If you are familiar with these men, the following quartet names may stir that chemistry within you:

While Micah, Mark, Michael and Brian have never sung together as a quartet until the discovery of Hr, their bond was quickly formed. The activation of their harmonic energy resulted in first place finishes at the 2016 and 2017 CSD International Preliminary Contests and were International Semi-Finalist at the 2016 International Barbershop
Harmony contest that was held in Nashville, TN. They won the Central States District Quartet contest in October of 2016 adding yet another championship to their list of accomplishments.
However, what matters most to these four guys’ barometer is the reaction that is created by the audiences they love to entertain. The energy Hr generates from the stage is a catalyst that will have your hands clapping and your heart pumping. Learn more about them through their Facebook page. Like them on Facebook today!
