On Sunday, August 23rd, the Denver MountainAires, along with four other area barbershop choruses, performed at the Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to the performance, chorus members competed in a throw together quartet competition prior to the evening performance.
During the afternoon, chorus members wishing to compete were put together in random throw together quartets. Each quartet found a song they all knew and practiced it for about 15 minutes. Afterward, they gathered in the auditorium and sang their songs before judges and an audience. The judges presented first, second and third place awards to the top three quartets.
The Denver MountainAires were well represented, with members singing in each of the six competing quartets. We were also well represented in the winners’ circle, with Bob Dickman singing in the third place quartet, Rex Abelein and Ralph Paul singing in the second place quartet, and Joe Gibson and Jerry Hooper singing in the first place quartet!
In the evening, an enthusiastic audience was treated to 2½ hours of fine entertainment and barbershop a cappella harmony. In addition to each chorus having its turn on stage, nearly a dozen barbershop quartets mesmerized the audience with their talents. The performance included an electrifying performance by the Barbershop Harmony Society’s 2015 International Senior Championship Quartet, Saturday Evening Post, and was topped off with a finale that included the combined talents of all five Denver area choruses singing together!
Afterward, participants migrated to the dining hall for a fantastic afterglow that included more quartet singing and an encore performance by Saturday Evening Post. The Chautauqua Barbershop Harmony Festival 2015 was, both, great fun and a huge success!
