History

The Alexandria, Virginia Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (then SPEBSQSA), was chartered by four "godfathers″: Dean Snyder, Eugene Barnwell, Jean Boardman and Louis E. Metcalf, and sponsored by the Washington, DC Chapter (the Singing Capital Chorus). On June 29, 1948, Boardman presented Ed Poole, the president of the newly-formed chapter, with the charter for the new Alexandria Chapter.

The Harmonizers won their first Barbershop Harmony Society International gold medal in 1986, in Salt Lake City and have earned the title three more times since then (1989 Kansas City, 1995 Miami Beach, and 1998 Atlanta). They have also earned 11 other International medals and are the current (2009) Mid-Atlantic District chorus champion.
