We are very happy with the community response to our offer of Free Singing Lessons. The 6-week course is taught by COA Director Craig J. Page and Matinee Idles Director John T Huetz at Red Bank Middle School on Tuesday evenings. The students were given instruction in the mechanics or singing and breathing.
On the first night, Tuesday, September 20, there were 24 men in attendance.
The chapter purchased sheet music for Love Me And The World Is Mine and distributed it to the students. They were taught to sing a passage in unison. None of these men are barbershops and half them have no experience singing outside of their cars or showers. There were terrific!
The students are training in the cafeteria of Red Bank Middle School with Craig and John, while the Chorus of the Atlantic meets in the auditorium with Asst. Director Kirk Thomson.
