Dominion 4

The Dominion 4 barbershop quartet formed late in 2003 to sing 4-part harmony when Loudoun County’s newly formed barbershop Chorus of the Old Dominion needed people to deliver Singing Valentines in February of 2004. The first time that Bob Rodriguez (Tenor), Ray Sitter (Lead), Frank Shipp (Baritone), and Dave Updegrove (Bass) met to practice, they found they had the all-important blend of personalities, and a good vocal blend. With similar ideals of entertaining and a “leaning towards humor”, they set to work to become a top-notch barbershop quartet, and the first to emerge from the Loudoun County chorus.
