Las Vegas has two barbershop quartets that will soon be merging into one. This holiday season is the final time that the two groups perform separately as The City of Lights Chorus and the Gamble-Aires. Next year, they will be united as The Silver Statesmen. Three members of the City of Lights Chorus join us to discuss the art of the barbershop chorus and talk about their holiday concerts.
