Barbershop Harmony Society marks 75th anniversary

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A cappella harmonies weren't the only sweet treat Thursday in downtown Nashville.

The Barbershop Harmony Society celebrated its 75th birthday in The Arcade with a little music and a whole lot of cake.

"We've got 75 birthday cakes - one marking each year to help us celebrate," said Rick Spencer, director of operations for the Barbershop Harmony Society.

The Barbershop Harmony Society began in 1938 with 26 guys in Tulsa, OK, and now includes tens of thousands of singers across the globe.

In 2007, the organization moved its headquarters to Nashville, and the birthday celebration Thursday in Music City was just one of many being held across the country to celebrate the special milestone.
