An unexpected surprise: Barbershop harmony in Sunset Park

At least once a week, the past few weeks, when I step outside my front door I hear beautiful music somewhere nearby.

Today I decided to walk over to the park to see what was going on. To my surprise, I came across three men singing under the covered play area at Sunset School Park.

It was a beautiful sunny day and there were just a few people walking in the park who all stopped to listen. I was able to ask and find out who they were.

The gentlemen sing in a barbershop quartet which is part of a larger group called the “Seattle SeaChordsmen” They were missing their bass singer on this occasion, but they sounded wonderful.

They will be performing a virtual show on December 3rd, "Home for the Holidays" from 7 - 8pm (link to be provided later). 

If you happen to be at Sunset Park around lunchtime I hope you get to enjoy the joy that they are bringing to the neighborhood.

Thank you for saying hello while we were singing. We appreciate the warm welcome we've gotten from neighbors as they've stopped by!

Oh, I heard this, too, and was so surprised and happy!
