Birthdays make our hearts sing

Hard to believe these ladies are another year older — could it be that singing a cappella makes one age in reverse, like Benjamin Button? Either way, we’ll never pass up a chance to sing Happy Birthday — in four-part harmony, of course!

Happy birthday, Anna and Vera! And happy birthday in absentia to Coralyn, who missed her chance to wear the April birthday gals’ sash (there’s always next year 😉).

. . . and many more!

91 and going strong

Our most senior member, Ruth, is not only a powerful bass, she’s also a proud Roosevelt High School alumna. In keeping with tradition, she celebrated her 91st birthday this month with an enthusiastic rendition of the Rough Riders’ school song, joined by fellow alumnae Rosie, Carole, Janice, and more! Hail to thee, Roosevelt, and Happy Birthday to you, Ruthie!

Birthdays take the cake

At our last rehearsal of every month, we always celebrate chorus members’ birthdays with a birthday sash, a special “get to know you” question posed by our Birthday Captain, Wally, and a rousing round of Happy Birthday to You in our best barbershop style.

Our November birthday girl, Rosie!

This month’s birthday celebration coincided with National Cake Day,” which we marked with cake hats and more.
