The Pontiac-Waterford Big Chief
Chorus has concluded another gig-filled Christmas season. During
November and December 2007, the barbershop chorus
morphs into an all-comers Christmas chorus.
December 4 and 22, armed with a repertoire of nine songs, half-and-half
sacred and secular, the chapter sang to 27 groups, including
facilities, business groups, grocery stores, medical facilities, show
sponsors’ businesses, and the Holly Dickens Festival.
Eighteen of these
involved the whole chorus although they also included
whenever available – B-Natural, Celebration, Four Wheel
Drive, On Tap,
Local Color IV, and Northbound Sound. We averaged 42 singers per
singout this year compared to 33 last year, illustrating the growth of
the chorus under new director Tom Blue, and also the decision to
welcome several Sweet Adelines for the holiday
