Scope and Contents:
This series documents a concert by the Harmonizing Four, held Sunday April 12, 1981 at Baird Auditorium, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. The concert was presented as part of the Black Gospel Music Series by the Division of Performing Arts. The series and program were organized by Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, director, Program in Black American Culture (later known as the Program in African American Culture). The series consists of audio recordings of the concert and includes a concert program.
Biographical / Historical:
The concert of the Harmonizing Four documented in the Program in th African American Culture Collection was designed to honor and pay tribute the Harmonizing Four, an all male gospel group from Richmond,Virginia, who have been singing together for more than fifty years. The group began singing together on October 27, 1927. The orginial quartet members were Joseph Williams, Thomas Johnson, Jr., Lawrence Hatchett, and Lawrence Longhorn (the latter two now deceased). The Harmonizing Four began as an informal a cappella group who sang spirituals, hymns, and classic gospel songs. Every member is a leader and soloist and they do all of their own arranging. The present group includes two original members. The Harmonizing Four documented here are: Joseph Williams (lead, baritone, manager, spokesman) Thomas Johnson, Jr. (lead, second tenor) Lonnie Smith Sr. (lead, first tenor) Thomas Ellis Johnson (bass) Rick Monroe (guitarist)

From Notes on the Artists, Program Notes by Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon. See Program Notes for additional information about the Harmonizing Four and the Black American Gospel Music Series.
