Looking Back on the December 9th Caroling in Old Towne

Despite another rainy nite, a good group of just over 30 Harmonizers gathered at Durant on Tuesday, did a little warm up with Tony and Joe, got a little briefing on meeting at Market Square and how we would sing in the various restaurants, and headed out.


We sang at seven places (which Mark Klostermeyer had prearranged) and were hugely received by their patrons.  It was fun.  The rain held off actually and even tho most of us had holiday sweaters or Santa hats etc, it got warm in the eateries.


Don’t forgot that we have a special chapter election next Tuesday nite at chapter meeting.  Also it will be our last meeting til after New Year’s.


Be sure to settle up on your White House ornaments sales matters with Sandy Stamps.  And contact Christina Ammerman to order scrip cards to be delivered to you on Tues nite the 16th.  She needs to hear from you before Dec. 11.


Alan Wile sends his usual invite:  Yes, it’s that time again – time for the annual TubaChristmas concert at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. The time is 6:00 p.m. and will run for about 45 minutes. Expect to see (and HEAR) a collection of 250-300 tubas and euphoniums/baritone horns play Christmas carols in four part harmony. It’s not quite like barbershop but is definitely a musical “happening!” It’s a free show, too. Go, enjoy the music, and then eat dinner upstairs.


Until next time – editorjack!
