Barbershop convention comes to Belmont University

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Not only is Nashville the international headquarters for barbershop quartets, this week, it is hosting the big barbershop convention at Belmont University.

"When it's all sung well together, it creates something in the universe," said Debbie Cleveland from Tampa.

It's obvious Cleveland believes it's something from the universe. She loves this week working with the best.

"I can ask them to do anything, and they say, OK, and they just try it and do it and they're wonderful," she said.

Matt Hopper got hooked on harmony at the age of 17.

"I heard a barbershop quartet come to my high school and do a demonstration, and I thought, that's the coolest thing I've ever heard, I've gotta get involved in that," he said.

Hundreds of hours of practice, and still, the sound never gets old.

"It is just the biggest rush ever, you get the goosebumps standing up on your arms, and you just want to do it again," Hopper said.

The big best of the best barbershop show is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Massey Performing Arts Center on the Belmont campus.
