Hall Of Fame
Updated: Jul 12
While every sport, many industries and avocations have their own Halls of Fame, some of them are more well known than others.
Everyone has heard of the Baseball Hall of Fame located in Cooperstown, NY and the Professional Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. (I’ve visited both and highly recommend them even if you’re only a “fair-weather fan”). Some HOFs are lesser known: the National Toy Hall of Fame - Rochester, NY; the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame - Chattanooga, TN; and the Pin Ball Hall of Fame - Las Vegas, NV, to mention just a few.
Recently a friend shared that his son’s barbershop quartet, Vocal Spectrum was inducted into the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Hall of Fame on July 8, 2023, only the 10th quartet in the society’s 122-year history to receive this honor.
To fully appreciate why this group is so special and worthy of this recognition, I encourage you to take four minutes and listen to their version of Go the Distance paying particular attention to the length of time tenor Tim Waurick holds that final note at the end of the song. Enjoy!!
