If, on a Monday evening, you drop into the community room of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church located at 36th and Everett Streets, NW, you will hear ringing chords of barbershop harmony as the Singing Capital Chorus (SCC) grows and polishes its broadly diverse repertoire.
On February 2nd, the SCC was graced by a visit from the Dukes of Ellington, their Director, Steven Allen and Mary Jane Ayers, Chair of the Vocal Music Department at the Ellington School of Music and the Arts. The 14 male high school singers showed us their exceptional talent and enthusiasm for singing in both choral and a cappella styles. Steven Allen combined his impressive musical and motivational talents with those of our director Bill Colosimo and associate director Sheryl Berlin, each of them directing the two individual ensembles and then all of us singing together.
