At the end of my high school year I knew that my opportunities for choir and theatre productions would be slim in the future. I love performing and I didn’t want to lose the talent I have worked so hard on. So near the end of my senior year I looked into joining a professional Men’s barbershop chorus…
It wasn’t until the summer after my high school graduation that I went to my first barbershop practice. I was welcomed into the Saltaires chorus by a warm welcome and many strong tags! Since my first practice with the Saltaires chorus I am hooked. I am the youngest in the group and only a few months after my first practice I was invited to perform with them at the Assembly Hall on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. The sound on that stage is amazing and in true Saltaires fashion we put on a phenomenal show!!!
After my first nerve racking performance, I quickly became an official member of the Saltaires chorus through the Barbershop Harmony Society. I love going every Thursday, and lately some Saturdays, to Salt Lake to practice our repertoire of songs for an upcoming show or competition.
Right now we are working really hard on our Spring Show entitled “It’s a Great Day!” Not only will we be performing our songs, but we have two other quartets performing with us. Crossroads and Bounce! Three high quality shows in one! Our Show will be on May 21. There two performances at 2:00 and at 7:30. Tickets are available at http://www.brownpaperticke ts.com/event/164462.
