Barbershop singers grateful for many years of support

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
The members of the Little Apple Barbershop Chorus thank the 68 sponsoring businesses, individuals and organizations in Manhattan and surrounding communities for supporting the Chorus’s 38th annual show April 12, in McCain Auditorium.

  We are also grateful for the support of another 88 indivi-duals and businesses that were “Super Patrons,” “Patrons” or “Friends.” This support permits us to fulfill our charitable goals. 

This past year, our chapter made charitable contributions of nearly $5,000, with more than three-fourths of it supporting area school vocal music edu-cators, the Manhattan Arts Center, a scholarship to KSU’s vocal music student and our practice facilities; also, almost one-fourth went to the Harmony Foundation. The chapter will soon donate $2,500 from its Christmas show to vocal music programs of five area schools.

The Little Apple Barbershop Chapter is a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) in Nashville. That is the largest singing men’s organiza-tion in the United States and Canada. The nearly 24,000 men are members in about 800 chap-ters along with official associa-tions in 10 other countries. We truly live up to our motto: “Keep the Whole World Singing!”
