Each summer during the Racing season in Saratoga, (basically the end of July through Labor Day), the men of the Racing City Chorus take to the streets of downtown Saratoga on Thursday evenings and serenade the diners, pedestrians and on-lookers up and down Broadway in a series of 15-20 minute - "mini-shows". These shows are sponsored by the local dining establishments and have been well received for the past three years.
The evening usually starts with a little warm-up outside the Saratoga Police station on the Lake Avenue side of City Hall at about 6:00 p.m. We then commence to walk to our hosts' destination and we start the "public" portion inside and outside a half dozen spots at 6:30 and continue until all venues have been properly "serenaded", usually about 9:00 p.m.
The RCC members then usually "retire" to one of the restaurants for a little "afterglow" - a chance to whet the vocal cords and do some more harmonizing.
