The Kent Island Bay Times - - Arts & Entertainment -

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 har­mony­on­the­bay@gmail.com.
