Chorus celebrates graduates, prepares for comedy show
CENTREVILLE — Eight women were celebrated by Harmony on the Bay women’s chorus on July 24 after completing a six-week program of singing lessons in Queen Anne. The “Ready, Set, Sing!” program was taught by chorus director Ronaleen Gapetz.
The group of graduates included two gospel singers; a mother and teen-age daughter; a health care worker; a health administrator; and two retirees. They came from Kent, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, and Caroline Counties.
Harmony on The Bay is a women’s a cappella chorus specializing in the performance of barbershop style singing. The eight students worked on vocal techniques with Gapetz and practiced two songs by George M. Cohan. After each class they were invited to join the regular Tuesday night chorus rehearsals.
Harmony on The Bay chorus is now preparing its annual musical comedy show to be performed in November at the Ruthsburg Community Hall. The show will mimic a traveling USO show and will feature George M. Cohan’s “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and “Grand Old Flag,” along with many other songs.
Auditions for the show will be held throughout the month of August. For more information, contact Dale at 301-512-3288 or email email@example.com.
