BOHiCA Says Goodbye
- Sorry for the extreme tardiness of this email, given that our last
performance was months ago.
As you all probably know, BOHiCA is no more. The website
(http://www.bohica-acappella.com/) will be around for a while longer if you
want to look at it and/or download song clips. If you want to order a
full-length CD ($10+S&H), email sing@.... And now, the
Dear Family, Friends, Fans, Passers-by, or anyone who accidentally receives
I want to thank you equally for supporting BOHiCA these last four years.
Being a BOHiCA has been one of the most incredible projects I have
participated in, and one that has led to many wonderful experiences. It is
a very difficult thing to leave this piece of my life behind. There is a
large part of me that truly wishes this singing group could go on forever. I
have worked with many ensembles and I can tell you that it's rare to find
one comprised of such talented people who ALSO have the kind of
compatibility and chemistry that we were able to achieve. Twice-a-week
rehearsals are quite an antidote to a bad mood and if anything could cheer
me up when I was down, it's hanging out with Chris, Sara, and Ian. (Thanks,
Future plans: I sincerely hope that there will be a BOHiCA reunion (maybe
more than one) and that we will continue to perform when the chance arises.
In the meantime, after my summer travel to Europe and Israel, I will be
attending Brandeis to get an International MBA (a two-year program). During
this time, I expect to join or start an a cappella singing group, as singing
is one thing I cannot live without).
Sara says: Thanks to everyone for all of your support of BOHiCA! Even though
singing for new people was great, it was always nice to look out into a
crowd and see some friendly facing smiling up at us. My plans for the future
don't involve any singing so far, but I am in two other groups where I play
the trombone: The Blowkings (www.blowkings.com <http://www.blowkings.com/>)
and the California Repercussions (www.repercussions.com
<http://www.repercussions.com/>) . You can catch both at a number of fairs
and festivals around the Bay Area, so visit the websites and come out and
enjoy! I wish everybody happy and healthy summers, and keep your eye out for
me - you never know when I might hit the a cappella stage again! ~ Sara
Chris would like to join with the rest of BOHiCA in giving a hearty thank
you to all our supporters. For the time being, Chris will be re-entering the
world of musical theatre. This summer, he will be playing the role of Benny
Southstreet in Foothill Music Theatre's production of "Guys and Dolls"
(http://www.cb-pr.com/foothillshow2.html). If you want to be kept informed
of Chris' future performances, you can email him at cferejohn@...
(note: if you are a friend of Chris', you're probably going to be emailed
whether you like it or not).
Ian's current whereabouts are unknown. However, certain signs and portents
received in dreams indicate that he adds his voice to the chorus of "Thank
Yous" proffered by the rest of BOHiCA. His summer will presumably be taken
up with planning his impending marriage to Laura Lapinski in mid-August. As
for the future, it is whispered in dark corners that he may pick up the
French Horn again and attempt to find his way into a local symphony. In
fairness, it is also whispered that he is the secret founder of the Order of
Hippocampus and will be leading his followers to salvation by way of the
comet Zeta-9000, so don't pay too much attention to whispers.
Cheers, and thanks for the ride
