2012 Harmony Explosion Camp
Thanks Bob Coant for another great HX Camp. Lots of love and thanks to our GIRLS! Hope to see you next year! Loved being on staff with the hilarious and oh so talented Lunch Break!
Thanks to Steve, Skye and Peter for helping to make this a GREAT CAMP! We'll be back!!
An odd, but VERY enjoyable gig! We sang for marathon runners as they approach the last leg of the 1/2 marathon 18.12 Challenge. The race culminated in historic Sackets Harbor, NY, the location of a famous battle in the War of 1812.
The runners were so appreciative! We've been asked to do it again next year! Cool.
Assorted pics from Harmony, Inc. 2012 International Convention in Orlando Florida at the Hilton in Disney!
It was our first Parade of Champions singing with Lynn. She sang great!! We are so grateful that she agreed to sing with us and that FHS can carry on singing with yet another wonderful lead!
And then we sang ...or rather we attempted to sing... a farewell tag with our original 17-year lead, Laurie, and presented her with red and white roses. A very grateful Harmony Inc. gave her a standing ovation! And then we all cried.....
At POPS CONCERT - Alexandria Central School where we started 2013. This was a fund raiser for Katie's Select Choir and we were happy to be part of it!
Mic Testers for Area 3 AC&C - Palmyra, NY
We headlined the Crawford County Chapter Show in Meadville, PA... with Speakeasy Rascals from SenecaLand District. We had a great time... especially the Afterglow!
At Mid-Atlantic District's Harmony College East in Salisbury, Maryland where we coached quartets and served as the
teaching quartet for the Girls Chorus. Such great gals!!
At the Friday and Saturday night shows where the all the Youth quartets, MAD quartets, Collegiate quartets, Youth Guys and Gals choruses sang and other guest groups (us too) and Da Capo (BHS)
Thanks to the Mid-Atlantic District for allowing
us to be part of this great education weekend!!
You made us feel like one of the family!!
At the 2013 HX Camp In Rochester, here is the Girls Chorus. We just LOVE these gals!!
We were on staff once again and, as always, enjoyed spending the barbershop filled weekend with "our girls"... some of whom we've seen here for up to 6 years in row! Awesome!!
With 'Shoptimus Prime - Boys teaching quartet and
such nice guys! They are the BHS 2013 International
7th Place Collegiate Quartet!
With JOKER'S WILD - 1994 BHS International Champs!
It was great to see/hear them again... especially singing
"The Rhythm of Life" - AWESOME!
Quote of the weekend - "I LOVE Pennsylvania" .... You'll have to ask us about it...'cause the story can't be told here!
Pictured with just 2 of the many quartets who attended HCE. Below is Girls Chorus with clinician, Anne Bureau
(a Harmony Queen and good friend of ours)
Again this year we briefly entertained the more than 500 runners in the 18.12 Marathon that ends in Sackets Harbor, NY. As they pass by they give us a thumbs up or a little clap as a thanks for our song... and that's all we can do too ('cuz we're singing!) to encourage them to the finish line. We want to shout "You're almost there!" but continue to sing.
Definitely a different, but very enjoyable gig!
Our 2013 International Convention was held in Windsor, Ontario at Windsor Caesar Hotel. We wore our pretty new black gowns on the Parade of Champions and were pleased with our performance. But later that night Lynn hit the JACKPOT on a penny slot machine won $2499.27! Wahoo!! You go girl!!
Aside from the very enjoyable Christmas performance at the Wellesley Island Nature Center, this day was made even more joyous with the announcement from Lynn that she and Jim would be getting married... very soon!
Later in the week she informed us of the date - December 28th. OH HAPPY DAY!
Watch for wedding pictures ... coming soon!
The happy couple- Mr. & Mrs. James Blakeney!
A shot with the quartet and the
silly bridal party in choir robes!
I thought they were going to start singing
"Oh Happy Day!"
