SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 27, 2019 — The Peninsulaires Chorus, Silicon Valley's Barbershop Chorus SM, announces its annual Free Open House open to the public.
On Thursday, June 27, 2019 7:30 PM ... Have you sung in a Barbershop Quartet? Or want to know how to sing in a Barbershop Quartet? There is a fraternity (and sorority) dedicated this style. You can come to check it out, or come just to listen to some music. For those of you that are familiar with us, enjoy some good barbershop singing, as Peninsulaires Chorus won first place division AA tier again last year, and the Super Sisters of Sound Wave are singing really beautifully! Besides these choruses, there will be musical numbers by PHC and a few quartets. The students of our Vocal Clinic will graduate ... Then the finale of the evening will be their recital, where we all join the students to sing a song in 8-part harmony!
This free admission evening will be from 7:30-10:30, 375 N Pastoria Avenue (Elks Lodge Sunnyvale). But feel free to stay a bit afterwards to try your hand at singing a barbershop "standard" with a pick-up quartet.
Music for these suggested "standards" can be downloaded for free from the Barbershop Harmony Society at:
(Generate a password, and download the "Heritage Of Harmony Songbook", then select one of the following "Standards")
Standards: "My Wild Irish Rose", "Wait Til the Sun Shines Nellie", "Let Me Call You Sweetheart", "Story of the Rose"
(Seasoned Barbershop Singers are welcome to select any song from "Barber Polecat 1")
