The Holiday Season Is Here


 VSW 2019 Chorus on stairsThe Racing City Chorus welcomes the Holiday Season with several special events.  The season started with the Victorian Street Walk in Saratoga where RCC sang at the Adirondack Trust on Broadway on Thursday, December 5.  

Julia Dunn at CBS 6 in Albany came to rehearsal recently, interviewed some RCC members, and took some video shots about RCC singing at the Victorian Street Walk.  You can see the Positively Upstate video news article by clicking here.

The Street Walk is followed by the annual perforance at Sartoga's First Night on December 31, 2019.  RCC sings at the NYS Military Museum at 6:00 and 7:00 located at 61 Lake Street.  If you like barbershop singing, there is more as the Saratoga Sountrack Chorus sings at the same location at 8:00 and 9:00.

This year RCC added a couple of new holiday songs to its repertoire.  The chorus has fun with  "Happy Holiday" which was introduced by Bing Crosby and Marjorie Reynolds  in the 1942 film Holiday Inn in a scene when the Inn opens for the first time.

Also, some of the RCC members get together as a Very Large Quartet (VLQ) and sing "Believe."  The VLQ captures the beautiful harmonies of this barbershop arrangement.  "Believe" is a popular 2004 Christmas song from the film "The Polar Express."

This year RCC is proud to continue singing Christmas carols at several nursing homes and senior centers in the Saratoga area. (The schedule is being developed.)

Fun Information

 Did you ever wonder why men's barbershop music is written on the treble and bass clef while the notes actually sung are really bass clef notes?  Below is the first line of My Wild Irish Rose written as actually sung with the tenor part in black, the lead in red, the bari in green and the bass in blue!  You can see why Barbershop chords have such close harmony. Now you know.
