BBShop Catagories

There needs to be favorite Male and Female Barbershop Chorus and Quartet catagories like there are for Favorite Soloist or College A Cappella group. There are a lot of awesome quartets and choruses out there and they deserve an equal chance to shine.

That's a great idea! CASA

That's a great idea! CASA does not come up with the categories, though. Fans of a cappella music submit categories  before nominating even happens. If this is important to you, make sure to submit the categories next February!
