Re: [bbshop] Digest Number 1810
- Craig & all,
In response to your inquiry, included below; I recently wrote a series of
articles, printed in several district publications under the overall
heading: "Quartetting, The Ultimate Barbershop Experience". I believe
the series was carried in the Sunshine District "sunburst", Pioneer's
"Troubador", and Far Western's "West Tunes". If you can contact any of
those, there may be some useful guidance. The articles suggest steps and
attitudes in the process, from initial plans for seeking participants to
developmental steps along the way.
If you are unable to access the above sources, respond privately to me
and I will gladly share. After all, that is exactly what people like the
Mid States Four, Buffalo Bills, Confederates and many more did for me
when I was starting out.

Subject: I need help starting a new quartet....
I'm interested in starting up a Barbershop Quartet at my college,
don't have a clue where to start. Is there a book or on-line
that could offer some direction for me? I need to know where to find
the music, and some tips on how we might market ourselves in our
community. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
