This week’s meeting was another hard working rehearsal for the Harmonizers as they prepare for the Supreme Court show on June 3rd and learn lots of new music and stage presence for 2019.
Will Cox, assistant director emeritus, did the warm up sessions this week. Prior to the meeting start Chuck McKeever helped guys who came early to brush up their moves for uptunes, and the front row did the same thing.
When director Joe Cerutti took over, he reminded everyone that coach Cindy Hansen Ellis will be with us next Tuesday nite to work on the visual aspects of the Supreme Court performance. Songs for that show are “American,” “I’m the Music Man,” “We Kiss..,” “All You Need is Love” and “Circle of Life.”
Basic work time was spent on “Brotherhood” with associate director Tony Colosimo directing and Bruce Roehm coaching SP.
Before the chapter meeting started, Joe congratulated Mario Sengco on being elected as president of the Washington DC Gay Men’s Chorus!
Communications guy Steve Murane conducted the meeting time which was brief this week.
Membership guy Calvin Schnure welcome singing guests Jerry Candrilli and Vinny Capaccio. They are in a quartet with new member Scott Beach and longtime tenor Michael Geipel. All of them drove up from the Richmond VA area.
After a break time, it was back to work on our new music and the extensive staging work for the major uptunes.
Until next time – editorjack!
