da Upper Yoopers’ Barbershop⁺ Chorus….September 23rd

​​…..will probably be a THING on September 23, from 7 – 8:45 p.m., at the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room, and each week after that, in another location. That will be our Chapter’s first meeting, ever!

Three days before that, you and many, many more are invited to attend the Escanaba Remnants Chorus show, called the Harvest of Harmony on September 20. Their headliner quartet is Masterpiece (International Champions, 2013!!) Check them out on YouTube, or at barbershop.org.

We intend to hire a Checker bus (or two, if the need arises) to pick us all up around 5-5:30 p.m., travel directly to the 7 p.m. show, take us all to the Afterglow that usually lasts to about midnight, then take us all to our pickup spot(s). Show tickets, with Afterglow are $20. Donations for cold cut sandwiches at the Afterglow average around $5, (drinks are extra), and the bus cost will range from $16-30, depending on how many attend and which vehicle(s) is/are used that night. Totals for the night could range from $30 – $55 each person. This is yet another example of “Many hands, light work”!

We hope to get much more specific as soon as possible, and you can help. Please call, text, or email Pete at upperyoopers@gmail.com with your intentions as soon as you can; preferably before August 17.

Alternatively, those on Facebook can go to facebook.com/upperyoopers and click on the event there.

Sooner is better: A local self-identifying ‘Groupie’, Blanche Brown, is already calling a list of 68 people from Marquette and Alger counties that are on record for attending previous Remnant’s shows on their own, and many of them may jump at the chance to safely nap on part of the way home, before you even get the chance! Others make a weekend of it, staying in Escanaba overnight on their own.

Please share this widely, and expect this to be an annual THING, too!
