Barbershop chorus members honored

-A A +A

It isn’t the chance to win competitions or become professional singers that keeps members of the Lads of Enchantment singing; no, these glittery ideals are pushed aside in favor of a much simpler one, to just have some fun.

Recently, two members were presented awards for enhancing on that fun. The Man of Many Notes, which honors a member who has brought new singers to the group, was given to Terry Langham. Langham recruited eight new members to the chorus.

Additionally, Barbershopper of the Year was awarded to John Baillie. This award is the highest recognition given through the organization.

Recipients are singers who regularly attend, have fun, grow in skill, support others in the chorus and can be counted on to do the volunteer jobs.

President of the chorus, Phil Seeger, explained Langham and Baillie were honored because, “they have been here 13 (Baillie) and 15 (Langham) years ee they are the backbone that keeps the group going.”

The chorus also operates on enjoyment.

“The reason why guys come is because it’s fun,” Seeger said.

Additionally, it is an opportunity to sing. “We support other nonprofit groups,” Seeger said. “We’re always available to sing.”
