THE DENVER MOUNTAINAIRES KICK OFF THE HOLIDAY SEASON IN STYLE
by Ralph Paul
On Saturday, December 5th, the Denver MountainAires barbershop chorus with guest chorus, Colorado Chord Company, Sweet Adeline chorus, High Country, and headliner quartet, Ruby Blue, kicked off the holiday season in style with their Holiday Harmony 2015 show.
During the first act, the Denver MountainAires, directed by Priscilla Rahn, Colorado Chord Company, directed by Rod Sgrignoli & John Coffin, and barbershop quartets, the UltraSonix, Crosswise and 4 Mellow Fellows got the audience into the spirit of the season with some great holiday harmony. The first act ended with the Denver MountainAires and Colorado Chord Company combining their talents to sing It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas and Jingle Bells.
During intermission members of the Denver MountainAires and Colorado Chord Company entertained guests at the membership table in the lobby with typical barbershop tunes like My Wild Irish Rose, Honey-Little Lize, Coney Island Baby and more.
After raffling off free tickets to the MountainAires’ upcoming show, Great Day for the Irish, the audience was treated to the sweet a cappella harmony of Sweet Adeline chorus, High Country, directed by Rebecca Richards. They were followed by barbershop quartets, Hit or Miss and the Grace Notes who thrilled the audience with their songs of the season. Afterward, the MountainAires stole the audience’s hearts when they sang their wish for the holiday season to them with, The Secret of Christmas, directed by Jerry Hooper.
Headliner quartet, Ruby Blue, then took the stage and mesmerized the audience with their angelic a cappella harmony. For the powerful finale, all three choruses took the stage and captivated the audience with Joy to the World and Silent Night.
Several members of our audience said they thought this was our best show yet. Regardless, we all had a great time celebrating the season, and we hope our guests had as much fun listening as we had singing.
To see what you missed, check out the video, below. It is a 13 minute compilation of all the choruses, quartets and songs in the show in high definition. You’ll feel like you actually attended! Special thanks to Al Klinger for creating this great video.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to our chorus members and quartets and to our wonderful audience. We hope to see you, again, at our next show, “Great Day for the Irish,” on Saturday, March 12th!
