* In ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'' (both the stage play and the film) Professor Harold Hill teaches the four squabbling members of the school board to sing Barbershop.

In both the original production and the film, the School Board was played by the 1950 International Quartet Champions of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA).
