Three High Schools Represented on Youth Barbershop Chorus

Barbershop ChorusThe 17-member Pacific Suns, the newly formed San Diego County youth barbershop chorus, includes students from three San Diego Unified schools: SCPA, Scripps Ranch and Patrick Henry high schools.

The chorus made its debut at the International Youth Barbershop Chorus Festival in Las Vegas Jan. 29. There, 19 choruses from all over the United States and Canada, and as far away as New Zealand, competed for top honors.

The Pacific Suns is a joint effort of Pacific Coast Harmony Men's Barbershop chorus and choir directors from San Diego schools.  Other schools participating are Fallbrook, High Tech, and Classic Academy high schools.

The chorus is directed by Allan Webb of the La Jolla Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society.
