As one of the most sought-after barbershop quartets, Forefront enjoys a busy schedule entertaining audiences across the continent and around the world. They pride themselves in providing their audiences with great music, artistry, and high-energy performance! Forefront Quartet formed in August of 2009. In 2010 they won the Cardinal District Championship, and in 2010 and 2013 were named Cardinal District Quartet of the Year.

The quartet’s commitment to energy, passion, artistry, and class – and to consistently opening themselves up to, and engaging with, their audiences – has made them one of America’s most sought-after quartets. Forefront plans to spread music throughout the world for many years to come!
