  • Lads announce new director

    The Los Alamos Lads of Enchantment, the local  chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society announced that Jonathan Friedman was appointed as the new musical director of the chorus, July 26.
    Friedman is new to the area and the chapter and brings 28 years of barbershop singing, craft and directing to the chapter.
    Friedman recently said, “Our chorus has great potential and is loaded with very talented and motivated performers. Believe in yourselves. All I ask is for your attention, attendance, discipline and trust.
    “Together, we can look forward to great times of harmony and fellowship.”  
     Friedman previously gave vocal direction to the Tacoma Totemaires Barbershop Chapter in Washington state and organized the Temecula Wine Valley Harmonizers in California.
    Friedman succeeds longtime choral director Stan Bennett, who helped found the Lads of Enchantment chorus 20 years ago and has served as its director since its inception.  
    Bennett decided to “take a break” and pursue his other passion — singing as a bass in the chorus and with Four Praise Quartet.
    Friedman will lead the Lads’ Annual Show Oct. 26 and 27.
    He is a table games director at the Santa Claran Hotel Casino and lives in Española.

  • Wonderland comes to Rover Park

     The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series presents Texas blues-rocker Carolyn Wonderland at 7 p.m. Friday at Rover Park in White Rock. The show is free. Donations from Los Alamos County and many Los Alamos businesses, professionals and friends pay for the series.
    Wonderland is a blues and blues/rock artist with diverse influences from elements of country, swing, zydeco, surf, churchy gospel-soul, jazz, Latin and soul.
    “Carolyn is a great guitarist and singer. She’s played the world’s best venues, including public television’s ‘Austin City Limits,’ the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, all the Texas and New Mexico clubs as well as the European clubs,” LASCS Promoter Russ Gordon said.
    Wonderland is married to A. Whitney Brown, a comedian and writer for shows like “Saturday Night Live,” Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” and the liberal radio network’s “Air America Radio.” Brown is quoted as saying he’s “a vegetarian not because he loves animals. I’m a vegetarian because I hate plants.”
    An LA Times article said about a recent concert, “Carolyn Wonderland is the real deal. She’s an amazing guitarist. She whistled a solo. She even played trumpet, and damn can she sing.”
