It has been a few tough years. First, Covid and now ongoing political shenanigans. What to do?
Relax, take the afternoon off and enjoy music and ice cream at the Oceanaires first public performance since the pandemic.
This Saturday, September 23, at 2 p.m. at the Palisades Lutheran Church, 15905 Sunset Boulevard, members of the Oceanaires chorus and select quartets will perform popular and traditional songs in the barbershop style.
Barbershop music is a style of a cappella close harmony derived from traditional quartet singing.
The melody is sung by a “lead”, supported primarily by a “bass” an octave or more below the melody. The additional harmony parts are provided by a “tenor” above the melody and a “baritone” below.
The Oceanaires, a nonprofit organization, which has been entertaining the community more than 40 years, rehearse every Monday night, at 7 p.m. Men and women who enjoy singing are invited to attend and “Keep the Whole World Singing” click here.
Admission is free as a gift to the community, but donations are welcome (suggested donation for admission $20 and ice cream two for $5, or what you are able).
