Championship Quartet(s)

2009 The Edge

Other Awards:

J Friedman

This is J's first official Barbershop Harmony Society quartet although he did have a high school quartet. J earned a degree in Music and Speech Communications from the University of Illinois. He also sang in an a cappella octet at the U of I called "The Other Guys", and with the Varsity Menís Glee Club. J sings with the Masters of Harmony because as he puts it, "The high level of musicality and showmanship . . . made it an easy choice."

Meanwhile, a juris doctorate from Loyola University set him on his career path. Now ensconced as a bankruptcy specialist in a Century City law firm, J does pro bono work for the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles County Bar Associations and relaxes with ocean kayaking and camping.

J is single and has sons aged 14 and 7, both eventual barbershoppers, no doubt.
