Scott Feldmann - Tenor

Co-Founder, Music Director

Musical Influences: Journey, Queen, Billy Joel among many others

A "Band Geek" for most of his life, Scott attended Appalachian State University to study Music Education with a focus on instrumental music with no previous vocal experience. After being pulled into a group of guys singing Barbershop tags, he was instantly hooked. In the next four years he got involved in as much Barbershop and contemporary a cappella he could, singing with a number of Appalachian State groups including What's Yer Pleasure, Relative Pitch, and Another Level as well as the Men's Choir. In his spare time he enjoys distance running, playing the trumpet, and being awesome. Scott is also a member of the RTP Barbershop Quartet Midtown.
