This July we got to sing the national anthem at a Salem Redsox game, (note the Christmas in July theme).
In August, we (mostly) reassembled to have a great time at reCALibrate (aka aca-camp) and were the group there that had the most members in attendance. (Jesse was busy buying a house, so he didn’t come. Go figure!)
Now we’re diving in the fall and winter rep with a vengeance. On the horizon – possible ch-ch-ch-ch-anges.
In reviewing our accounts, we’ve apparently been great about FB but a bit lax over here. Sorry about that! So what’s been happening?
We went to Charlotte in May to see Home Free for some inspiration:
We made it through the first round of competition for the first annual A Cappella Open, but we ended up withdrawing for this year, because Jesse (Cogsworth) and Jennifer (Mrs. Potts) are in a production of Beauty and the Beast, and Liza is in a production of BINGO! which cut into availability over the summer.
Now we’re looking ahead to singing the national anthem at the Salem Red Sox game on July 27th @ 7pm.
Finally, we’re looking for (financial) support to help us go to summer camp – really! – in August and improve our aca-skills. See our campaign here:
So we missed the official first day by a hair, but nonetheless, we’ve been working away at new, outdoor-appropriate rep. For example check out our single take, one mic, one camera version of the Star Spangled Banner.:
Last Friday night we stood the cold/wind for the chance to participate in Christiansburg, VA’s annual holiday parade. A good, though icy, time was had by all. Jordan’s earmuffs may have been the hit of the festivities.
The next morning at Blacksburg Farmer’s Market was (slightly) warmer. It didn’t hurt that Liza arrived with snazzy new hats for us to wear.
Successful gigs at the New River Valley (Christiansburg) and Valley View (Roanoke) malls made for a day full of singing.
We had great auditions last night for new altos and tenors. Thanks to all those who participated – we loved singing with you and we’ll letting you know the outcome soon.
In the meantime, we’re still on the hunt for an advanced beatboxer/VP and a low bass singer. Get in touch if you’re interested or know of someone who might be the perfect addition(s) to our goofy crew.
That’s right! King’s Post is looking for new members. Most urgently, we’re hunting for a VP/beatboxer extraordinaire. However, we’re also searching for a mellifluous alto/mezzo and a rockin’ high tenor, so if you are or know a “permanent resident” in the Blacksburg/Christiansburg/New River Valley, VA area who would like to join in the zany fun, give us a shout.
