NEW Barbershop Chorus Hits the Stage Running
The Silver Statesmen barbershop chorus, only six months old, is already making a name for itself.
With Jim Halvorson at the helm as our new director, the chorus has met competition head-on in Ontario, CA where they were awarded Plateau A Chorus Champion in their division. They will compete in October in Bakersfield, CA, where the Far Western District competition gets stiffer with choruses from Arizona, Nevada, Southern Utah, California, and Hawaii.
With nearly 80 men on the roster, the Silver Statesmen will be performing locally at four different venues to celebrate the 75th anniversary of their parent organization, the Barbershop Harmony Society.
The show, “Celebrate Harmony”, will be at these locations:
■ Friday, August 2, 7pm, Sun City Anthem – Freedom Hall, 1815 Hovenweep St., Henderson
■ Saturday, August 10, 7pm, Sun City Summerlin – Starbright Theater, 2215 Thomas Ryan Blvd., Las Vegas
■ Sunday, August 11, 2pm, Winchester Cultural Center, 3130 McLeod Dr., Las Vegas
■ Saturday, October 5, 2pm, Desert Spring United Methodist Church, 120 N. Pavilion Center Dr., Las Vegas
The Silver Statesmen chorus is Nevada’s largest men’s a cappella group. It is an award-winning, all volunteer chorus known for its thrilling, close harmonies and commitment to musical excellence.
The chorus is chartered as the Las Vegas Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Proud to perform and preserve the unique sound of “barbershop” harmony, the chorus also sings a broad repertoire of other musical styles.
The chorus provides singing, music and performance education opportunities, as well as Youth In Harmony programs in communities within the Las Vegas Valley and throughout Southern Nevada. The chorus, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization, is self-sustaining through gifts, performance fees, admission to shows, and other fundraising activities.
The Silver Statesmen invites men of all ages to join. The chorus rehearses at 7pm each Thursday, at Christ the King Community Church, 4925 S. Torrey Pines Dr., Las Vegas, NV 89118. For more information, visit www.silverstatesmen.com
Once upon a time, senior citizens were old people. They were assumed to be suffering from ill health and in need of care. They sold their homes so they could move in with children or move to a care facility. Not any more.
Now senior citizens exhibit the same variety of health and fitness as people much younger. In fact, those who have actively taken care of themselves are probably more fit than those in their teens and 20’s who shun exercise and live on junk food.
So, assume nothing, because senior citizens come in many varieties, with many different goals.
Many choose to remain in their homes, while others want a change of scenery. But even those want to sell have different reasons.
Some want to get away from excessive maintenance chores. They’ll choose a smaller home with a smaller yard – or perhaps a condo. They may be in failing health, but don’t assume so. They may just want to pursue hobbies or take up volunteer work or be free to travel. Many have something they want to do that they couldn’t do before, and they don’t want to be tied down by a high maintenance home.
Others want to find a new home with a large yard, or even acreage, so they can take up gardening or buy a horse or raise dogs.
Some just want to get away! They’ll sell the old homestead and move into a motor home so they can see the places they’ve been dreaming about for all those years when they were tied to work.
Some want to move to a more temperate climate – they’re tired of the cold and snow and want to get outdoors and play all year. Some have always dreamed of living on a lake or in the mountains or on the desert. Some wanted to get away to a small town with a slower pace – or to move to a city with opera houses and art galleries and the theater. But until now, they were stuck because they were afraid to move away from their work. Now they can go where they want.
Of course, there still are those seniors who are selling because they do need to move in with the kids or to an assisted living facility.
Your job as an agent is to not assume anything. If you want to sort your lists, set up a capture on your website with information about downsizing to a smaller home, and a separate capture with information about transitioning to assisted living. You could even have different pages on your site – just like you might have different pages and different information for first time buyers and move-up buyers.
When you get a call to list a home for a senior citizen, go with no pre-set ideas. Wait and talk to the homeowner before you try to anticipate just what kind of assistance they need. Otherwise, you’ll risk alienating a new client before you get a chance to show your stuff!
