Fraser (Flex) Brown 4/16/1944 – 12/17/2020

A Cappella Syndicate was very lucky to have known and grown with Fraser at our side. He was loved and respected by his fellow owners, and he gave us the honor of singing with him. His legacy and memory will live long in our hearts and minds. Flex, we miss you. May your endless courage and strength live within all of us.

From his wife, Babs Brown-
As you know, music was Fraser’s life’s passion. He began singing in the Toronto Boys Choir at age 6 where he made his debut on a record album. At 16, he moved to Scottsdale because of his arthritis. That was where he was introduced to Barbershop Harmony. He graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Music Theory and Composition. Although his career was in computer software, he used his degree in his church and Barbershop arrangements.

His computer career included positions at First National Bank of Arizona, Capex, Computer Associates, Viasoft, and GoDaddy.

Fraser followed his passion of chorus and quartet singing most of his adult life. He sang in shows all over the United States, and he attended competitions and conventions for many years. These last few years, his health did not allow him to travel. Eventually, he was not strong enough to sing.

Because of COVID-19, Kacy and I have decided that there will be no public celebration of life. If you wish to honor his memory and love of music, please send a donation to Harmony Foundation International. Donations in his honor will be used for music education for children/youth. Simply enclose a note saying “In honor of Fraser Brown - gift to be used for music education” and mail it to:

You guys were absolutely wonderful. I had
no idea what to expect and I was
blown away! ~Spring Show Audience Member
The barbershop harmony show in Mesa was
the best barbershop show I have
ever attended (no this was not my first
& only barbershop show). ~Spring Show Audience Member
First of all I want to say, BRAVO!!
YOU were great, and the whole
show was wonderful. I really
enjoyed it. It was my first ever a cappella
concert, so I didn't know what
to expect, but it was so fun.
Fabulous! Sofia, Phoenix
The entertainment last night was
OUTSTANDING. ~Tom, Phoenix
Your April 1 show was the BEST
that I have EVER heard anywhere!
~Spring Show Audience Member
The group harmonizes & acts
together like a well oiled machine.
Keep it going.
~Spring Show Audience Member
Not only was the show so entertaining
and musically resplendent, but
the "getting together" of a busload of truly impressed folks was quite
helpful in putting entertainment and
artistry on a level field we could all
enjoy.
~Spring Show Audience Member
Congratulations on a great show.
Everything was enjoyable, but my
favorite was your chorus by far.
Your sound is fantastic and everyone
puts on a great visual performance
(you have great stage presence). I can see why you are so excited
about it.

Wonderful show!
~Sara, Chandler

What a talented group of singers and a fun group of songs.

<./em> What a fabulous show! My residents absolutely loved every minute. Beautiful, powerful voices, interesting and fun selections. Thanks so much to all of you.
Nancy Ehrhart, Activities Director, Monte Vista Village Resort I sing in the chorus here, and you are the best act we have had here.
Pat at Monte Vista We loved it!
Dana Raye Just want to tell you that I loved the show yesterday, and thank you for personally delivering my ticket. I look forward to next year's efforts."
We surely enjoyed the trip to Mesa and want to thank you for organizing it. The performance was not only entertaining, but inspirational as it always is to see people so in love with what they are doing. What a wonderful instrument is the human voices, as you and your colleagues demonstrated so well. You were beyond awesome. The whole group was amazina.
Jen What a great concert. You were wonderful.
Kathryn Fabuloius show! The best yet!
L. Pyper Great Show! (which we've come to expect).
Dan Attended 4 years in a row, and always wonderful.
Cristi It was a lovely, lovely show!!! Fun story and stunning, stunning harmonies. I'm so glad we were able to be there!!!
Barbara Brown It truly was a great show! Looking forward to seeing more of your performances.
Richard Hermann We absolutely loved it! When I hear the beauty of true harmony sung by such beautiful voices, it makes me long for this type of music...It must reach some deep part of our soul (or at least it did mine!)
