    Christmas with the Chordbusters

    Join us on December 9th at the beautiful Missouri Theatre for Christmas with the Chordbusters, an afternoon of world-class barbershop harmony and holiday spirit! The Boonslick Chordbusters, who have been bringing barbershop harmony to Columbia MO since 1997, will be joined by Central Standard, an award-winning barbershop chorus based in Kansas City, Missouri. The chorus is a 6-time medalist in the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Chorus Contest. As if that weren't enough, Talking Horse's Holiday Bound will also be on stage to spread some holiday cheer! Oh, and the Mizzou Tiger Tuners, Mizzou's newest collegiate barbershop quartet, will be making their concert debut as well!

    On Saturday, April 14th, the Chordbusters are hosting an a cappella contest for youth quartets. This contest is open to anyone 25 and under, and the winning quartet will receive a prize of $400.

    • pre-register for the contest by Friday, April 13th.
    • sign in at the venue upon arrival, before the contest begins.
    • sing one song a cappella (no instruments) live in front of the contest audience.

    This contest will take place at First Baptist Church (of Columbia) immediately following the Chordbusters show Tunes From Around The Dialwhich begins at 7 P.M. and will likely end around 9 P.M. General admission for the contest/afterglow is $2, but performers/competitors will not need to purchase tickets. Since it will be part of the afterglow, the spirit of the contest should be relaxed fun and friendly competition. The winner will be determined by audience vote, and the $400 prize will be awarded to the winning quartet at the end of the afterglow.
