New Year, New Board of Directors

January 1, 2018 - 10:49pm -- Christopher Boron

The Alliance annual banquet was on December 21st, 2017 and as usual the Board of Directors was installed for the following year. We were lucky enough to have Rusty Cates, Alliance member and 2017 JAD Director of Outreach, on hand for an engaging presentation. Like all of the parts of an apple in our district's namesake, your Board will be working together to operate in service to the vision of the Chapter (core, seeds, flesh, fruit, skin, stem, and all!).

acknowledges the unceasing contributions of The Alliance members who demonstrate his spirit of 
silent, behind-the-scenes service.

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!
