In celebration of The Barbershop Harmony Society’s Diamond Anniversary, The Lancaster Red Rose Chorus will present Celebrate Harmony on Sunday, May 19th at the Lancaster Church of the Brethren starting at 3PM.
Celebrate Harmony – the show and the song (written and arranged by Joe Liles) – were written especially for the 75th anniversary of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Both will be performed by choruses across the country in 2013.
Former chorus members will join current members on stage to perform barbershop classics such as Lida Rose and Let Me Call You Sweetheart. Quartets will perform songs sung by International Quartet Champions of the past. The show culminates in a tribute to our Armed Forces.
With this show we hope to entertain and educate the public with our rich heritage and the music we share. Here you will find a little sprinkle of our history throughout the show with the main focus on our style and the entertainment value of our music.
We want to entertain first, and educate our audience second. The songs selected were picked based on the following criteria:
- The era, style and song are “Barbershop”.
- They are easy and fun to sing.
- There is a historic connection to our heritage.
- Each song has a learning track.
All of these songs have been previously published and cleared by the Society.
These songs are vintage arrangements and have not been overly performed by Society choruses in recent years – these are “fresh” and new repertoire for our chorus.
