Hey guys, I thought I would take a break from my regularly scheduled nerdiness to introduce all of you to MORE of my geeky lifestyle. I’m certain you’ve all seen the hit TV show, The Office, and can recall the episodes where Andy Bernard uses the very unique attempt at making friends by way of recording songs where he sings all four parts…I do the exact same thing! (With exception of doing it SPECIFICALLY to make friends.)
Above, you’ll find my most recent multi-track song, Ave Maria, by Franz Biebel. Ever since 2002 I’ve had this part time job as a part predominant learning track recorder, recording learning CD’s for chorus all over. This latest project has now been created thanks to my sister-in-law getting married and wanting a sacred song to fill the halls of the chapel. She asked me, and I obliged.
And in case you’re all wondering, (which I KNOW you are) I also sing in an internationally ranked Barbershop Chorus called the Sound of the Rockies. I drive an hour and 45 minutes every Thursday to rehearse with the 150 man chorus. I’m also privileged to have sung with the 2010 International Youth Barbershop Chorus Champions, 52Eighty, back when I just barely qualified as a “youth,” coming off that international stage as a 28 year old international chorus champion.
Oh, and if you’re Catholic, sorry for the slight lyric change. Lutherans have difficulty with the whole “worshiping Marry” thing. Let it be known right here…Catholics DON’T WORSHIP MARRY!!!
Ok, tomorrow we’ll be back to comic book nerdity! Thanks for indulging me!
