Northern Blend Chorus, the 2017 International Chorus Champions of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, will host its annual show Sing Fling at 7pm on October 13 at the Dulles State Office Building in Watertown.
In addition to Northern Blend, this year’s Sing Fling will include performances by special guests:
Taken 4 Granite (2016 International Quartet Champions), chapter quartets LiveWire (2015 International Quartet Champions), For Heaven’s Sake (1996 International Quartet Champions), Lip Service (2017 International Quartet Bronze Medalist), Firestorm (2018 International Quartet qualifier), and Balancing Act (2018 International Quartet qualifier).
Alexandria Central K-12 music educator Katie Taylor directs the approximately 30-member Northern Blend Chorus, with assistant director Mary Ann Wert.
“Northern Blend has always been pretty good at putting together a package of music that has a lot of variety,” states director Katie Taylor. “We have some great contestable pieces, including two new contest numbers for the Spring that we will be debuting at international, as well as some pop, inspirational, and traditional barbershop. We love having a variety and entertaining our audiences with music that will be familiar to them as well as things that are new!”
Also joining Northern Blend on stage are the Alexandria Central Select Choir and Ensemble as well as the General Brown Generalaires. “We are thrilled this year to once again sponsor this enjoyable event filled with youth groups from Alexandria Central and General Brown School Districts,” notes chorus president Taralee Lashway. “Our chorus, as well as our parent organization, Harmony, Inc., is dedicated to encouraging youth development and growth through music education.”
Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction of a painting by award-winning local artist Richard Trick.
