Your Singing Voice is needed
to beat Minneapolis!

Great Plains Harmony of Fargo Moorhead is a competitive men's chorus. For the past two years, we have lost to the Minneapolis chorus by only two points (out of 1200 possible points). We've had enough!

We need Your Singing Voice!

We are committed to defeating the Minneapolis chorus and need Your Singing Voice to help claim a substantial singing victory over this big city chorus.

  • Be part of something larger than yourself
  • Experience an authentic, modern barbershop experience (attention vocal education majors!)
