The Board Four made their live public debut at the Queen Anne Farmer's Market last Thursday, August 12. They are Chris Saether (tenor), Rod Heivilin (bass), Gary Ackerman (lead), and Jim Durand (baritone). Drew Robinson ably pinch hit for Jim this time, and is pictured above. Chris sings lead with the chorus and is learning new parts, so their repertoire is somewhat limited for now. More to come, however!
This is getting to be a habit! Actually, planning at least two of these a month on regular rehearsal nights. Come on back, everyone, there's plenty of room! Here's a video of You've Got a Friend.

One neighbor of the park wrote a nice article in the Shoreline Area News about how we've been fililng the park with music:more
The SeaChordsmen made their annual trip to the Horizon House retirement community on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. All these wonderful were people were in our "Range of Vision" as we entertained them with songs from our Summer show "Follow Your Dream" last June.
