Another Great Season 


Barbershop On Broadway


Thursday Night Entertainment Series 



Barbershop on Broadway, (BOB) was a resounding success this racing season with lots of singing by the Racing City Chorus (RCC) and the Remnants Quartet to very appreciative audiences from many walks of life including visitors from other states and countries. The program ran for six consecutive Thursday evenings along Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs.

 

It was all made possible by our many generous sponsors without whom it never would have happened. RCC is extremely grateful to those who contributed to our success! The BOB Thursday Night Entertainment Series was presented by the Union Supply Co.; Venue sponsors included the Adirondack Trust Company, Stewarts Shops, and Impressions/Dark Horse Mercantile. Our exclusive “After Glow” sponsor was the Olde Bryan Inn where singing and fun continued long after the program was done. Entertainment sponsors who also played an important part were the Adelphi Hotel, Discover Saratoga and the Scott Varley Team.

 

Thanks to all the members of RCC and our enthusiastic Director, Rich Gervais, for giving of themselves over the course of 6 weeks to make this all come together. We also thank the City of Saratoga Springs for working with us so that RCC was able to continue to be a contributing factor in the overall Saratoga experience during the racing season. Our program coordinator was Pete Tarana who along with the never tiring assistance of our consultant, Fran Dingeman, put it all together.

 

A great job done by all.  Below are some pictures of RCC singing in front of the Venue Sponsors:

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.
