Bravada is a registered quartet and one of the four quartets within the Fun Center Chordsmen that participate in the Young Men In Harmony program (YMIH). Bravada goes to area Middle and High Schools to show the young men and women what barbershop harmony singing is all about.
The members of Bravada believe that singing in a quartet is definitely the epitome of the barbershop, four part, a cappella harmony experience. They have performed at Father/Son and Mother's Day banquets, Assisted Living and Nursing facilities, private parties, group functions and participate in the chapter's Singing Valentines program. They have performed on the Fun Center Chordsmen annual show since 2002 and have been known to sing for their supper in area restaurants. Bravada, as a quartet, has attended a three day Johnny Appleseed District barbershop school, Apple Corps, and received quartet coaching from the 1991 Gold Medalist quartet, The Ritz. They have also attended an Intensive Quartet Training (POP GUN). They used to attend coaching sessions on a regular basis until their singing coach is Mark Stock, Bass of the 2008 International Medalist Seniors quartet, "Test of Time." moved to North Carolina. Bravada is serious about their hobby and continue to work hard and have fun!
Bravada was the 2008 Johnny Appleseed Novice Quartet Champions, with Tim Brandt as Tenor and Bob Crowl as Bass.
