Broadway Next? November 10, 2013


Rönninge Show Chorus, GoldAnd the winner is…. Rönninge Show Chorus, from the Nordic Region! Rönninge Show Chorus won gold in the world championship of barbershop singing, in Honolulu Saturday November 9, 2013.  They received the highest score in history. Keep spreading the news…

Gosh – I am smiling as I see the video from the performance in the final.

1) To me barbershop has always been such an american style of singing – the clothing, make-up, everything around it. And actually, living in the US now, it still seems – a tad different.

2) I’m seeing a lot of faces from the old times 18 years ago – this choir (132 on stage) has members in the age of 16 to who knows 75?

3) It’s a solid musical performance – and what is the theme?????!!!!?!?!?!? Can’t believe it. As it has been my theme this fall.  In the final package shown in the video below from the webcast the choir performs 4 songs. The show-tunes start at 12min 25s.

New York next? Maybe re-joining this choir, would be the quickest way to Broadway. 😉 Not kidding. I wonder if I would make it in the audition for the spot in the middle of the front row again. Imagine the wall of sound coming over you being in the very middle of 150 singers… Pretty amazing.

My vote is: Broadway next.
