More About Magnetic North

Although relatively new as a quartet, the four members have over 140 years of combined barbershopping experience between them.  In 2016, Randy Nerbas retired and Dave Buffie stepped in as Tenor. He comes with many years of singing with other winning quartets. Mag N strength comes from the blended voices, which is centered on the two brothers, Robin and Howard singing Bass and Lead respectively.  In addition to singing on every show with the Grove City Chorus (in which Robin is currently a director) the quartet has sung in a number of venues around the province.

  • Jim Cochrane, baritone
  • Robin Saumer, bass
  • Howard Saumer, lead
  • Dave Buffie, tenor
