Barry Fortgang’s latest project is The Filharmonic, a Filipino a’cappella boy band. The 6 young men got together 2013 for the first time, recorded an audition video, and sent it to NBC’s Sing-Off producers. It was so exciting to get a callback! They were in the top 100 out of more than a thousand groups. After another audition The Filharmonic was selected to be one of the ten groups on NBC’s hit TV show, The Sing-Off!
Nine TV shows were aired in December with about 8 million viewers per show. The Filharmonic performed well on all nine shows and was the most popular group. Although “Home Free”, a group who has been together and touring for over 10 years, won the competition, The Filharmonic developed an outstanding fan base.
“The Sing-Off 30-City Tour” is over. . .but the fun is just beginning! The Filharmonic are beginning to make waves in the entertainment industry. They have performed with Linkin Park, Black Eyed Peas, Pentatonix, and many other well-known artists.
For the last year The Filharmonic has been touring on their own. . . NYC, Rochester, Boston, Cleveland,
Pittsburg, Hartford, Anchorage, San Francisco, San Diego, Riverside, Orlando, Tampa Bay, Miami, and
many more! In October the group performed at The White House and in November in the Philippines.
The Filharmonic also had a cameo role in Pitch Perfect 2 which was also voted the #1 sound track of
the year in the motion picture category and The Filharmonic is on a track.
Barry and The Filharmonic thank their friends, family, and fans for all the love and support throughout this entire experience. Please keep supporting them and believe in your dream. http://www.thefilharmonic.com/
