Annual Show A Unanimous Success
Everyone agrees that the Racing City Chorus 2015 Annual Show on June 6 was the best we have had in years. From Gary Glidden, show chairman: " This show was a return to the special concert shows that we haven't done in recent years and I think we all agree what a great auditorium facility Schuylerville is." Rich Gervais, Director, says: ". . . we can accomplish great things when we work collaboratively and support each other in our great hobby and in our efforts to bring this great American art form to so many fantastic audience members." Jerry Crouth, RCC member: "Last night's show was a very positive experience for me and one of the best of the 20 Annual Shows that I've been part of."
The show appropriately named "AHHH CAPPELLA" presented songs by the Racing City Chorus along with local and chapter quartets including Contempt of Chord, Late Bloomers, Elderly Brothers, Dented Fenders, and Primrose Lane and featured the outstanding Senecaland District Quartet Champions, Cold Snap, who amazed the audience with their performance.
At the traditional Afterglow at the Elks Club, the quartets and chorus couldn't stop singing barbershop music long into the night. It was a great wind-down after the annual show.
The show also reminded us of the absence of our RCC member and dear friend, Guv Wallace, who passed away in 2014 and as RCC member Joe Cutshall-King reminds us in the Joan Mitchell song: "You don't know what you've got till it's gone."
Now we look forward to the 2016 Annual Show when RCC celebrates its 60th Anniversary. Set your calendar for June 4, 2016. See you then.

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.
