The Los Alamos Lads of Enchantment (LOE) 2014 Annual Show will feature the 2010 International Quartet Champion — Storm Front.
Performances will be Oct. 24-25 at the Duane W. Smith Auditorium.
Storm Front is one of the world’s most accomplished barbershop quartets, noted for both its sound and its captivating performances.  
After qualifying for international competition in 2003 and placing 17th, the quartet placed 10th in the world in 2005 and 2006, sixth in 2008, and third in 2007 and 2009, before winning the gold medal in 2010.
Storm Front is said to be one of the world’s most accomplished barbershop quartets, noted for both its sound and its performances. After qualifying for international competition in 2003 and placing 17th, the quartet placed 10th in the world in 2005 and 2006, sixth in 2008, and third in 2007 and 2009, before winning the gold medal in 2010.
Consequently, Storm Front has appeared throughout the US, in Canada, in Great Britain and is scheduled to perform in Japan in early 2015.  The group has also produced four CD albums and two DVDs that will be available for purchase at the show.
As customary, the LOE Annual Show will have two parts. The LOE will perform in the first part, and Storm Front will perform after intermission and refreshments.
Storm Front will perform in the second half of the show, following the presentation of “As Time Goes By”, featuring the Lads of Enchantment Chorus and Quartets, under the direction of Jason Rutledge.
Rutledge is the Los Alamos High School choir director and a singer.
“As Time Goes By” tells a story, sung by the LOE chorus and quartets.  The songs will include traditional barbershop favorites, such as “Muskrat Ramble” and “Hello Mary Lou,”and classic ballads, including “As Time Goes By,” “Something” (by George Harrison), “Dream” and perennial favorite, “Shenandoah.”
The show was moved to the auditorium from the usual venue at the United Church. “When it became clear that our usual venue at the United Church would not be in a suitable state, we made a study of all available performance spaces in the county,” said John Baillie, president of the LOE. “The clear favorite was the Smith auditorium, because the auditorium has recently been renovated and has all of the technical features requested by Storm Front.  Since we have an international champion quartet, we want to provide them the best performing environment we can.”
In appreciation for past support and having a desire that the community and northern New Mexico experience renowned, world champion barbershop performers, the LOE is holding admission prices to their customary levels of $15 for adults and $5 for students at the more-accommodating auditorium.     
The show begins at 7:30 p.m., each night.
On Oct. 25, there will be an “Afterglow” in the chorus room, adjacent to the auditorium, following the show.  The Afterglow entails a snack and additional singing by Storm Front and LOE quartets for a modest fee of $5.
Advanced tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for students, and may be purchased at CB Fox or from chorus members.
