ORLANDO EXCHANGE QUARTET
Orlando Exchange has been together since 2012 and is an active part of the Barbershop Harmony Society. With a goal of sharing the excitement of barbershop harmony with the community and especially encouraging youth participation, the members of Orlando Exchange have been leading the way to create two new youth choruses in Central Florida.
Tenor: Jon Kelley Is a man of few words, but as an engineer he is the "Brains" of the operation. Many a time Jon has kept us on track and out of trouble. Jon’s voice is also the icing on the cake that makes barbershop music so delicious.
Lead: Greg Patterson graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a degree in music and is proud to be the Musical Director of the New Smyrna Beach Harmony Sound Waves. Greg also sings with Rare Blend, a mixed A Cappella quartet performing across Central Florida for the last 11 Years.
Baritone: Sean Stork graduated from Florida State University with a Degree in Music and is the musical “Go To” man in Orlando Exchange. Sean always seems to come through with a fresh arrangement to fit the occasion. The other three members of Orlando Exchange all secretly wish they had his vocal skill and talent, but don’t tell him that. After all, he is still just the baritone.
Bass: Matthew Boutwell has a Bachelor’s Degree in Music from UCF and sings the bass part with unmatched passion. You can tell by the smile on his face as the chords ring out loud. In addition to spending time with his beautiful wife of 10 years and chasing his 3 sons around the house, he also directs the Orange Blossom Barbershop Chorus, and is associate director of the Community Youth Chorus of Central Florida.
