2017 Alzheimer's Walk a Success!

September 28, 2017 - 2:03pm -- Christopher Boron

On September 24th, The Alliance had an amazing opportunity to impact the community, and 10 members of The Alliance delivered smiles to participants and volunteers for the Walk to End Alzheimer's Opening Ceremony. Each member represented the organization gracefully, even with a limited turnout of performers. It was a hot day, but no matter— Mark Morris held down the Bass Section for the performance.

Boardwalk at Labor Day Jamboree

August 29, 2017 - 2:43pm -- Christopher Boron

What are you doing this Labor Day? This weekend, in Sunny Orlando, Florida, hundreds of barbershoppers will descend upon the Airport Marriott for a weekend of tags, amazing quartet performances, and relaxation. 

Our esteemed director, David Calland, is the baritone in one of these quartets that will be performing. If you're headed there, look for Boardwalk and cheer extra loud. A handful of Alliance members are also headed down to enjoy the weekend, so we'll be well-represented. If you'll be in attendance, take pictures and tweet at us (@AllianceChorus) to share the event from afar. 

For more information, click here. Have fun and be safe this Labor Day weekend!
