Love Notes began as a Young Women in Harmony quartet at ages 11 - 14 in 2002. They raised their level consistently through Sweet Adeline competitions, winning First Place International quartet in Honolulu in 2013. Audiences world wide love their mature a cappella sound. They perform professionally on a variety of stages, including performances on America's Got Talent, both L.A. and Las Vegas, appeared on Access Hollywood, were the guest performers for BING (Barbershop in Germany), and have won San Francisco's Harmony Sweepstakes. They have released 5 CD's and continue to travel as headline performers.
We are thrilled they will be Mountain Harmony Camp's teaching quartet for our sixth year! To see and hear more about
