Sing the songs we're teaching the teachers to sing
January 29, 2015
Next month, the Barbershop Harmony Society will have a major presence at the national convention of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA,) including a showcase featuring Crossroads and The Fairfield Four gospel quartet. It's a big deal: thousands of educators from elementary educators to college professors come looking for what's new, what's hot, and for the beat of the music around the globe. The Society will also host a music reading session packed with the best in barbershop publications. Want to see what they will take back to classrooms across the continent?
Some old, some new, some borrowed, some blue, right? And don't look down your nose on "Coney Island." The video of the Port City Sound singing "Under the Boardwalk" has sprung up to nearly 3 million views already. There's something for everyone here, from the very easy to "Shadrach," which on a scale from 1-5 is likely a 7.5.
