Nancy,If interested, write to me and I'll put you in touch with Bob.
I'm starting to work on forming a barbershop quartet for the next conference. Dale seemed genuinely pleased that we might form a quartet and perform. I sing bass, and Don B. and Mark C. sing lead and baritone, respectively. We need a tenor. We plan to learn a couple of standard barbershop songs and then try to have something Chestertonian put to music in the barbershop style. (The woman I take voice lessons from has joined the Chillicothe Chesterton Society and she has offered to create the music if I find the right words).
So I have a request. Can you put something on the blog asking if there is someone who would like to sing tenor (we'll learn the parts on our own and then practice together at the conference before the banquet) and if so, please contact me?
Also, can someone suggest one of Chesterton's short poems that might be humorous that we can put to music?
UPDATE: A tenor has already come forward!
BUT--we still need ideas about what Chesterton work might work well with a barbershop quartet of singers. Any ideas?
