→Bloomington's International Champion Quartets
The first was '''The Vikings''' in 1953. Although members of the Rock Island chapter, Baritone '''Bob Lindsey''' (bottom right) became a Bloomington member after the quartet disbanded. Until After Hours won in 2018, Bob was the only Bloomington member to ever have a gold medal as a quartet champion.
The second was '''After Hours''' quartet in 2018 at Orlando. The four young men had their start as Bloomington Chapter members and, after several personnel changes and job relocations, only Tenor '''Tim Beutel''' (upper left) is a Bloomington member. But the Bloomington's Sound of Illinois chapter calls the quartet its own.
