EUGENE, Ore. — Five barbershop chorus teams from across Oregon competed in the district competition Saturday. All the teams competed for a spot in this summer’s regional competition.

Judges had three different categories used to rank the performances. Each group was judged for their vocal performance, presentation and the music choice. Some groups did more acting during their performance, while others focused more on harmonizing the song.

Participants said competitions are a fun way to see how different groups present the music.

“It’s exciting, it’s always exciting for a competition you always want to do your very best and of course the fact that people come from all over the different areas, it always rises up your expectations and you try harder at this type of thing,” said Gary Raze, a Barbershop Chorus Singer.

Chorus’ from Medford, the coast and Portland joined the Eugene group on stage for the competition.
