7th Dimension

7th Dimension is the hottest new a cappella quartet in Fuquay-Varina NC. Formed in mid-2019, 7th Dimension has already performed at numerous events in the Raleigh / Fuquay area. At one such concert on December 14, "7D" gave a "lights-out" performance in Duncan, NC. (Well, OK, the power actually went in and out while we performed). Last November, in their first foray into competitive singing, they rocked the musical world by garnering 2nd place among mixed quartets. The famous crooner, Andy Williams, called (from heaven) to congratulate them, and said, "I only wish I could have had you on my Christmas TV Special in 1966!" (Too bad 3 out of the four had not been born yet).

7th Dimension is available for performing for your event, if we're not tied up playing in the Cumberland County Line Bluegrass Band, or directing the choir and orchestra at Fuquay-Varina United Methodist Church, or directing Greensboro's Tarheel Chorus, or singing with The Master's Men, or singing with Fayetteville's Cross-Creek Chordsmen.
