  • Anyone interested in caroling during the break?

    Nicolas Barrows from the bass section is interested in getting a group of interested people together to do some Christmas Caroling at locations to be determined pending on the number of people interested, Overall if you are interested email at nbarrows106@gmail.com or call at 720-979-3623 and list of one of your favorite christmans songs and a possible location to go caroling.

  • South African Song

    Since we are singing "Tshotsholoza,"  I thought some of you might be interested in the documentary Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony, a film about the ways in which song was a part of the resistance to Apartheid in South Africa. You can stream the film via Amazon Prime and the DU library (though I'm sure it is also available elsewhere). I highly recommend the film (warning: I cry every time I watch it). --Aleysia
