LUSTRE helps you wring (ring!) all the “barbershop” possible from a piece of music using “It’s The Music That Brings Us Together” by Clay Hine. (Music and tracks available in the Regional Music area of the regional website)

Region 15 Quartet Workshop with LUSTRE was held on June 5 on Zoom. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend! We thank all those who made this day possible: Our Quartet Coordinator, Sharon Vitkovsky, for organizing this wonderful programming; Our Education Coordinator, Jean Schoenlank, for her Zoom hosting duties and all she does for the region; and last, but certainly not least, Kate Morrical Towne (Tenor), Lori Crouter (Lead), Lori Dreyer (Baritone), Jenny Harris (Bass) -- aka the 2018 International Quartet Champions LUSTRE -- for sharing their time, talents, and insights with us.
