RINGMASTERS – Jakob Stenberg – Tenor | Rasmus Krigström – Lead | Emanuel Roll – Baritone | Martin Wahlgren – Bass Ringmasters is a barbershop quartet that was founded the fall of 2006, based in Stockholm, Sweden. The group all studied at Adolf Fredrik’s school of music and graduated from Stockholm’s Music High School. It was through the school choir the four members got to know each other and realized their shared passion for barbershop music. Today, they sing in the barbershop chorus Zero8, and many other choral groups. In July 2012, they became the first non-American quartet to win a Gold Medal in the Barbershop Harmony Society’s International Quartet Contest. They enjoy a busy touring schedule throughout Europe, Sweden, and the United States. ringmasters.se VOICES OF GOTHAM – Voices of Gotham is New York City’s premier men’s a cappella group, comprised of more than sixty talented voices.
