After a successful trip to the Sweet Adelines Region 1 Competition in April, the Mollyockett Chorus is rehearsing for its 2014 Roadshow, Big Hair.
The show is set in a hair salon—The Big Tease—where customers and stylists talk about life and sing a series of familiar (and not so familiar) barbershop harmony tunes including the theme song, Big Hair. Some of the more familiar tunes include At Last, I Believe in Music, Crazy, and a medley of Goody, Goody and Who’s Sorry Now, and audiences will delight in the more humorous numbers like I Feel a Flash Coming On and Diet Riot.
Big Hair will be presented as part of the Poland Spring Concert Series, July 21; at the Brick Church in Lovell, July 24; and at the Denmark Arts Center, July 26.
Under the direction of Bonnie Fox, the chorus includes the following members from Bethel, Rumford, Waterford, Lovell, Norway, South Paris, Oxford, Hebron, Bridgton, and Naples: Deborah Andrews, Cheryl Barker, Andrea Bennett, Merry Childs, Janet Coverdale, Joan Erler, Jolan Ippolito, Susan Leunig, Deborah Luxton, Nancy McNulty, Marylin Newell, Debra Nichols, Valerie Saurer, and Jan Ward.
The Mollyockett Chorus is a Region 1 Chapter of the Sweet Adelines International. They have been singing barbershop harmony since 1996. Barbershop harmony is a musical style sung without accompaniment by bass, baritone, lead, and tenor voices. Rehearsals begin on Tuesday, May 20 at 6:00 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on the Skeetfield Road in Oxford. New members are always welcomed.
