Harmonix Singers

03 Jan

On Monday night, my singing group had the opportunity to perform a 40 minute show at “First Night” at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. When we arrived we were pretty nervous — all those people who were coming to see us sing! When we accepted the invitation, we thought it would be a somewhat small venue with perhaps 20-30 family members and friends who would come to cheer us on. After doing a sound check and warming up, I went out onto the stage to set up our music and the house was packed — proabably 300+ people with standing room only. It was really cool, but we were somewhat nervous. But we went out there and did a great show consisting of 16 songs, most of them Christmas songs.

The funniest part of the evening is how we were announced. Our group’s name is “Harmonix” and they asked us to furnish a 100-word description of our group. So I put “Harmonix Description” as the header on the paper I sent them. The elderly temple square host then proceeded to introduce us as “Harmonix Description,” not once but twice. He apologized afterwards.

Anyway, I have posted our songs from that performance on YouTube and then created a blog for our group. Take a look if you have a second: http://harmonixsingers.wordpress.com/

My favorites are “Hark the Herald Angels,” “Angels Singing Deo” and “Rudolph.” Non-Christmas music selections include “In the Still of the Night,” “Silhouettes” and “Goodnight Sweetheart.”

    That is smart to make a blog for your group – maybe you’ll get some business. Looks like you guys were having fun!

    Pretty cool, hon. Make sure you remember to remove that “another wordpress.com blog” subtitle!

    Wow! Check you out!! Topher sat on my lap and together we watched your performance. He recognized you and said, “Andrew. Lily’s daddy!” You guys sound great. Maybe you can perform at Amber’s wedding. If you didn’t hear the news, she’s planning on a July wedding.
