About GQ, our featured guests
GQ is an a cappella and barbershop quartet from Baltimore, MD. Their members are Amanda McNutt (tenor), Ali Hauger (lead), Katie Gillis (baritone) and Katie Macdonald (bass). They sing a variety of styles spanning several decades and are four great friends who have a passion for creating a unique sound.
The quartet formed as an a cappella project in the summer of 2012. Since then, GQ has competed--and placed--in various a cappella competitions such as the Harmony Sweepstakes (2013 2nd Place Champions), SingStrong (2013 Champions), Rising Start Contest (2013 Champions), and the International Quartet Contest for Sweet Adelines International (2017 7th Place Quartet).
GQ has performed all over the United States and Canada and will soon perform overseas as well. They have served as the guest teaching quartet and clinicians for many harmony camps are all involved with the arts and education in some capacity for their normal jobs. GQ arranges many of their own a cappella songs and loves to collaborate with other quartets and artists.
While they have a name in the barbershop world, they have also made a name for themselves on the internet as well! They made the front page of Reddit with a video that now has over 1.9 million hits! They have also been featured on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion twice in 2015.
To stay up to date with the quartet, you can find updates on their website girlsquartet.com, or LIKE them on their Facebook page, facebook.com/GQquartet.
You are going to love Federal Way's new performance hall and the location for our two shows!
The Federal Way Performing Arts & Event Center (PAEC) broke ground in October 2015 and celebrated its grand opening on August 11, 2017. This spectacular one-of-a-kind, 44,000 square-foot center is located at the corner of S. 316th St & Pete von Reichbauer Way S in downtown Federal Way.
The 716-seat, two-tiered theater accommodates theatrical, musical, dance, and spoken word performances from the region and around the world. Jet Cities is one of the resident performing groups at this new facility, and we are proud beyond belief to have this new PAC right in our own backyard.
