On Wednesday, August 5th, the Denver MountainAires and Boulder Timberliners performed at the Performance Park amphitheater in Estes Park, Colorado. It was a beautiful evening with temperatures in the middle 70’s.
The Denver MountainAires started the evening with their Denver MountainAires Opener song, directed by Jerry Hooper. They continued with the Star Spangled Banner and finished with classic barbershop tunes like Give Me a Barbershop Song, Play a Simple Melody and Lida Rose, all directed by Priscilla Rahn. After hearty audience applause, the MountainAires were followed by three of their quartets who entertained the crowd with good, old fashioned barbershop a cappella singing.
The first quartet to sing was the MountainAires’ newest barbershop quartet, Hit or Miss, who stole the audience’s hearts away with their rendition of ‘Til There Was You. They were followed by Joyful Noise who entertained the audience with inspirational songs. The next quartet, the Grace Notes, left the audience laughing with their upbeat and humorous songs. Finally, the Boulder Timberliners treated the audience to beautiful harmony with five of their favorite songs.
After the audience’s thunderous applause subsided, the Denver MountainAires and Boulder Timberliners returned to the stage together, combining their talents for the final set. Directed by Priscilla Rahn, Jerry Hooper and Allan Barker of the Boulder Timberliners, they sang a medley of barbershop songs and finished up with a rendition of God Bless America that was so exciting, the audience stood up and sang with the chorus!
After the show, the Cultural Arts Council of Estes Park thanked the Denver MountainAires and Boulder Timberliners for a “great concert” which “…drew the largest attendance this year…around 200 people.” They invited us back to perform again next summer. The performance in Estes Park was a huge success!
On Saturday, June 27th, the Denver MountainAires, under the direction of Priscilla Rahn and Jerry Hooper, with guests, the Golden Eagle Concert Band, and Sweet Adelines quartet, So Jazz’d, performed our annual patriotic show at Arvada Senior High School. We had a great audience turnout of all types including families, students and senior citizens, all of whom attended to celebrate their patriotism and our upcoming Independence Day holiday. And the MountainAires did not disappoint! Included were patriotic numbers, songs from the broadway show, Music Man, concert band and, of course, good old barbershop a cappella harmony.
Some of the music the audience enjoyed included the Star Spangled Banner, God Bless America, Taps, Battle Hymn of the Republic, It’s You, Lida Rose and many more! Golden Eagle Concert Band numbers included 76 Trombones, Wells Fargo Wagon and many more. The Denver MountainAires and Golden Eagle Concert Band combined their talents in the finale to play and sing together Stars & Stripes Forever.
During intermission the Denver MountainAires were joined by our guests in singing typical barbershop songs at our membership table. Needless to say, a good time was had by all!
