The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

December 3, 2017 - 8:42pm -- Maggy Kantz

Knock, knock! Who's there? Snow! Show who?  ......um....sorry. 'Snow use. I can't remember the punchline!

Yes,Christmas Chorus came early this year. We ushered in the holiday season with a performance at Nickel Plate Arts First Friday, then a series of nursing home/assisted living performances on Saturday. Sacred, secular, and silly songs were all part of the mix, along with really corny jokes. (Do you know how much Santa's sleigh cost? Nothing! It was on the house!)

All God’s Children Have a Place in the Chorus

October 29, 2017 - 9:51pm -- Maggy Kantz

…and amazing things happen when we’re all in the right place! Recently Director Deb has been moving us around on the risers. It’s always surprising to hear how different we sound with the same women on the same night – just rearranged. This time we’re arranged by resonators – how and where each of us naturally produces her sound. The results are astonishing! We sound cleaner, brighter…and it’s just because everyone’s standing in the right spot.

Come sing with us!

September 23, 2017 - 7:23pm -- Maggy Kantz

Today was our first of two guest events for September. While any rehearsal is a good time to come check us out, guest events mean we don’t take anything for granted and take time to explain a few things about what and how we sing. These events are great for members, too! They remind us of all the things we technically know, but maybe don’t think about very often. Why are the various parts arranged this way on the risers? Who gets the melody in barbershop? What’s “forward” sound? Where are my resonators, and what are they for? What in the name of everything holy is a diphthong, and why should I turn it??? Guests join us on the risers for warmups and singing games, and as much of our regular rehearsal as they want to try.
