Are there any other members of the Barbershop Harmony Society planning to attend the 2010 Chesterton Conference? Or anyone who can, and would like to, sing lead (melody) in a Barbershop Style quartet? We need a lead.The Chestertones, an as yet unrehearsed quartet, had planned to sing, at least in the hallway, at the upcoming conference. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, one of our members has had to drop out. We need a lead.We plan to sing only 3 songs. They are: My Wild Irish Rose, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, and a newly arranged version of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy (in Barbershop Style). The words for Ode to Joy are those of G.K. Chesterton’s poem, from The Flying Inn, Song of Right and Wrong.I can FedEx the Ode to Joy words and music to any volunteer. The other two songs will be recognized by any Barbershopper as Barber Pole Cats, songs all Barbershoppers know. I can FedEx learning tracks and music to any volunteer for the Pole Cats. Also, the Pole Cats (My Wild Irish Rose, Let Me Call You Sweetheart) are immediately available if you have internet access at http://barbershopharmony.ca/
LearningLounge/If you’d like to join us at the Conference for some singing fun, please volunteer. Contact Bob Cook at 740-703-5651 if you can help us out or have any questions.
