On Saturday, May 7, 2016, the Martin/St.Lucie Mariners will host the second Treasure Coast A Capella Fest which we plan (and hope) will be a monthly gathering of people interested in singing a capella in small groups from 10AM until 3PM.


This will be our second gathering of people interested in singing a capella in small groups. Lunch and water will be provided. There will be no risers, no director standing in front, no rules. If you are looking for other people with whom to sing in a quartet or “very large quartet” or ensemble, this could well be the place to find them. Oh yeah, name badges would be good. If you have your own, please wear it. Otherwise we’ll have those cheezy “Hello, my name is…” paper ones.

Bring your own music to share if you’d like. Any music. We’ll have some mixed a capella songs on paper. If you want to sing tags, you’ll be in the right place. If you want to teach tags, please do. If you want to write tags, we’ll help; we have an app for that (Finale)! We’ll have tags on paper if needed. By the way, for the uninitiated (and we hope there will be some “rookies” there), “tags” might be described as “codas” or “very short songs.” Woodshedding will be encouraged. Again, for you that aren’t up on common barbershop harmony lingo, “woodshedding” does NOT involve something you do to your children when they misbehave; rather, it’s just a term for improvisation, barbershop-style! If possible, in order to plan lunch, we’d like to have a head count no later than Friday, May 6th. Just e-mail us at mariners.chorus@gmail.com, to let us know how many we can expect to show up. Can’t wait to see you there!

It will be held on the second floor of the North Stuart Baptist Church Education Building where there are seven rooms and many crannies.

Please feel free to invite whomever you’d wish.
