The Committee is a barbershop quartet that loves to perform for audiences, large and small.

Formed in 2011, The Committee has multiple Top-Five finishes in competition on the Illinois District contest stage and is the 2015 Illinois District 2nd place quartet. In 2016, The Committee was crowned the Illinois District Champion! The quartet has competed twice at the BHS International competition.

While the sound of the quartet keeps all four members excited to sing, it is the camaraderie, fraternity and laughter that makes rehearsals fly by-sometimes with more laughter than song.


The memorable sound of The Committee comes from the unique talent and experience that each member brings to the quartet.
