Princeton Garden Statesmen 50th Anniversary Celebration Gala
June 8 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$6 – $35
2019 is our 50th Anniversary as a chorus! We’ll be inviting back old members and directors, singing some of the old songs as well as some new ones. Tickets include a Buffet Dinner, soda, water, coffee and dessert. There will be a cash bar as well. Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear us and our Special Guest Quartet “Prime Time.”
Barbershop harmony is a style of unaccompanied singing with three voices harmonizing to the melody. The lead usually sings the melody, with the tenor harmonizing above the lead. The bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes and the baritone provides in-between notes, either above or below the lead to make chords (specifically, dominant-type or “barbershop” sevenths) that give barbershop its distinctive, “full” sound.
Probably the most distinctive facet of barbershop harmony is the phenomenon known as expanded sound. It is created when the harmonics in the individually sung tones reinforce each other to produce audible overtones or undertones. Barbershoppers call this “ringing a chord.” Singing in a quartet or chorus and creating that “fifth voice” is one of the most thrilling musical sensations you’ll ever experience, leading to goose bumps the size of golf balls.
