Nittany Knights

The Nittany Knights have done it again, with the latest production in their annual show series. This year’s show, entitled Be Our Guest, features traditional and contemporary tunes in a fun and upbeat performance.  In addition, we are excited to feature, by special invitation, the 2023 International Barbershop Bronze Medal Quartet Winners, First Take.

First Take is an a cappella quartet specializing in modern barbershop harmony arrangements.  The quartet was awarded third-place bronze medals at the 2023 Barbershop Harmony Society International Quartet Competition and is comprised of experienced performers, coaches, and teachers.

The members of First Take include Alex Corson (Tenor), Anthony Colosimo (Lead), Drew Wheaton (Baritone), and Andrew Havens (Bass). Each has had prior success in barbershop quartet competition before singing with First Take, including top ten finishes by Alex with ‘Studio 4’ (2018) and by Anthony and Andrew with ‘Da Capo’ (2016).  Drew is an international barbershop quartet champion, winning gold with ‘Forefront’ (2016).

To cap off this evening of amazing a cappella music, the Mount Nittany Middle School Clef Hangers Choral Ensemble will be gracing our stage with several of their engaging pieces, culminating in a joint performance with the Nittany Knights.

The Nittany Knights chorus is an a cappella ensemble of 25 men led by director Graham Sanders, performing contemporary arrangements of popular tunes as well as traditional barbershop favorites. The Knights have been entertaining audiences in the Centre Region since the mid-1970’s.
