Harmony Sweepstakes, here we come!

We’re thrilled to be invited to participate in this year’s regional Harmony Sweepstakes , hosted at the historic Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, and we’re already working away at our set.  We’re doing something a little different from the last time we were invited – pop culture writ large – and we hope you’ll come see what we’re up to this time around.screenshot from 34th Harmony Sweepstakes page

Speaking of pop culture, we’re also working up a surprise for an old friend. Stay tuned and we may just share the video once we’ve sprung it. 😉

Whoo hoo!

 

(O Holy Night ala N’ Sync, rehearsal cut 12/2017)

Whelp – we wrapped up a very successful holiday season with a gig at Blacksburg’s Farmer’s Market, where we were received with lots of applause.  The evening before, our concert at Warm Hearth Village went of swimmingly and we were rewarded with a photo with Santa and homemade cookies!  We’re taking a break to rest, travel, and enjoy the holidays with our other families, but we’ll be back and running in January!  Blessed Yule, Merry Christmas, Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukah, and lovely, warm holidays to all of you from all of us!

BRRRRRR!

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.

Happy Holidays!!

We’ve got several chances for you to catch us between now and mid-December.

Next Friday evening, 12/9, we ‘re marching and singing in the Christiansburg holiday parade.

On Saturday 12/10, we’ll be at the Blacksburg Farmers Market from about 10 – noon, at the NRV Mall from noon – 2ish, and the Valley View Mall in Roanoke from 2ish – 4.

We’ll also be making pop-up appearances hither and yon, so keep an eye out!
