i am a mom/wife/textile designer gone haywire. I love to sing(music/arts AA degree), craft, exercise, and be goofy. Just living life outside the norm. And the norm thanks me for it. Oh yeah, and I like me some haikus. . . . . . . . . . What are we up to currently? Aaron recently started medical school at Ross University on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean, and the kids and I are along for the crazy ride :)

American Harmony

Saturday, March 28, 2009

Ok, as some of you may know, Aaron and I sing. This has been a huge part of are lives thus far. Both aaron and I were in top HS choirs in the nation, met when we were cast as romantic opposites in the musical, Pippin, and majored in vocal performance in college(before majors changed).
When I found out about this movie I got SO excited! We LOVE Barbershop. Aaron had a barbershop group in HS, and I have been searching for a Sweet Adelines (womens barbershop) chapter to join since Christmas (was in a temporary group for christmas caroling and had way too much fun). It was on this search that I stumbled upon the movie, American Harmony- A documentary film about barbershop singing coming out this spring. Unfortunately they're not going to be showing it in a wide array of theaters, so I thought I'd spread the word- go to the web site and click GET HARMONY to be put on their mailing list- it asks for your zip code- if enough of us do this they will see that they have a following in AZ and hopefully bring it here. If they do, they will mail you the showing time and location so you won't miss it. Here is the site- watch the trailer. I'm excited. I love documentaries! Nothing better than real life!

I'm excited to see this, too. Thanks for posting the info. I love it when my kids sing.

Well this is quite a coincidence. As singers, haven't you heard of the early American composer Nehemiah Shumway (1761–1843), who in 1793 published a collection of songs called the American Harmony? Perhaps he's an ancestor of yours!
