Looking Back on July 29th Chapter Meeting

Looking Back on July 29th Chapter Meeting

(This message is prepared for your review if you were there, for your information if you had to miss, and as a historical record of the great things going on each week at an Alexandria Harmonizer Chapter meeting. —Ye Ed.)

Sorry for the delay – Ed. was in CO til today!

Tho the crowd was small since so many guys were at Harmony University in Missouri, the Tues session was lively and a good hard working evening. Will Cox and Chuck Hunter did the warm ups.

Then they had the chorus dedicated some time to working on “Second Star” including the use of AV for the music.

John Hohl coached the chorus on Director Joe’s plan to use “From This Moment On” as an opener. If you weren’t there, be prepared to learn about which part of the song has been cut, some note changes I think, and for sure some pep and speed and dynamics.

Roger introduced guests to include Josh and Curt who are likely candidates for rejoining -- both were members in the past.

After the break, President Stamps reported on the health status of Bob Rhome after his back surgery, and that Peggy Wagner had been in the hospital. He also led “Happy Birthday” for Ken Fess.

Ken White reported on our newest quartet program, “The Anytime Quartet” project. Themed quartets will be available to fill requests for quartets or entertainment (actually 8 or more guys trained and rehearsed but only four will do each gig). Some examples might be Military or Patriotic or Sweethearts. So stay tuned for more details.

There were some reports from Harmony U – shaved haircuts for Colosimo and Eckert (guess we will get the whole story on that when they return?); congrats to Director Joe who was accepted as candidate music judge; BACHELOR PARTY was there for quartet coaching.

And as already reported by Chris Buechler, here is the list of guys we know who were there from our chapter.

The following were at St. Joe for Harmony University:Joe Cerutti (Faculty),Gary Plaag, Chris Buechler, Anthony Colosimo (ROADTRIP), Tom Gannon, Joel Golden, Jim Lucey, Patrick Kim(Harmonizer scholarship recipient), Eric Wallen (Harmonizer scholarship recipient), Terry Reynolds (BACHELOR PARTY), Ken Rub (BACHELOR PARTY), Greg Tepe (BACHELOR PARTY).
