Downtown Sound – A Cappella Women’s Ensemble
Featuring “big band” and “barber shop” harmonies

Host Partner: First Baptist Church
Address: 405 N. Main St., High Point, NC

Downtown Sound – A Women’s A Cappella Ensemble brings tight harmony and infectious energy to the stage in a concert featuring songs that span over 8 decades from the ‘30s to present day. Barbershop, Pop, R&B, Country, Jazz: these ladies sing it all. They will have your fingers snapping and your toes tapping throughout their nostalgic concert of favorite tunes.

 In 2008 founding leader, Pat Thompson, gathered a group of women from diverse backgrounds to perform with Winston Salem area barbershop chorus, Triad Harmony Express for their annual show.  Downtown Sound was formed from the bond that grew between the ladies while preparing for the performance and their mutual love of music making. The ensemble continues to perform throughout the triad.
