New MexiChords 2014 Spring Show

This year, our chorus was visited by Dr Isa Fraud ("That's Frah-ood! It's German."). He is a specialist who was brought in to help our chorus members in their dealings with girls using his FONY (For Once, Not Years) therapy process. A number of members approached him for advice. Here, one of them gets Dr Isa Fraud's answer to his question.

Some of the questions — or was it just issues — came from members of our quartets. The problems ranged from love at first sight to frog kissin'. But as you can see, they (like the chorus) looked pretty good raising their issues. They sounded good, too.

Overall, Dr Fraud's answers didn't make a lot of sense. They weren't very helpful. But at least each seemed to have a good song to go with it. We all appreciated those.

So did he, enough that he changed his therapy process to SOFONY — So Fony — for Sing Out-loud For Once Not Years. And then Dr Isa Fraud declared himself successful, brought in some lovely ladies for us to sing with, and left for his dinner date with his wife Pearl.

Our show had a special appearance before our guest quartet was introduced. The ladies of On Q, the Albuquerque young women's barbershop chorus, stayed around for to sing several songs for us.

Our special guest quartet Main Street brought great singing, bad jokes, and a bit of soft shoe to our stage. They raised everyone's spirits, part of the time with their hats on

and part of it with their hats off, but all of it with an over-supply of charm and wit.

Fun for them, and fun for us.

Not long after singing on our show, Main Street competed at the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Convention and Contest, where they were judged the third best quartet in the world.

And then we all got to sing together. That was the best possible way to finish a most enjoyable show, and we made a great sound!

Barbershop singing — a cappella singing in four part harmony — is highly enjoyable. It's enjoyable for the quartets and the members of the chorus, and it's enjoyable for those who hear us sing. And that's what it's all about.

If you enjoy barbershop style music, watch for our next show and come hear us sing.
Or come sing with us. It's really fun!

The New MexiChords is an a cappella barbershop chorus in Albuquerque, New Mexico, affiliated with the Barbershop Harmony Society.
