Barbershop Harmony Day 4-11-2023

April 19, 2023 - 11:27am -- Karla Fenton

Being a part of National Barbershop Day was very rewarding.  The attendance at the event was huge.  The warmth and camaraderie in the room was inspiring.  We look forward to next year’s event.

Throughout the 1880s in the South, men mingled with barbers and others in the shop while waiting for their haircut.  They sang and harmonized together for entertainment.  This sound turned into a genre called barbershop music and continued thriving from then until the early 1900s. This art of harmonized singing was to produce a style of a cappella without the need for accompanying music.  Each quartet sang songs with easy-to-understand lyrics and catchy melodies.

Birthdays and Rehearsals

September 10, 2021 - 2:48pm -- Karla Fenton

Monday night is a wonderful evening of song with The Woodland’s Show Chorus! We are polishing our music for upcoming Sing outs and performances.  (Details coming soon!) In addition, we are learning new songs.

We have also started making movement adjustments to some of our favorites to fit with the new visual communication category. I think it’s interesting to realize these new expectations create more freedom of expression and renewed energy to the song. Thanks to LeRae LaVergne for helping us get started with thinking about this different way of performance.
