The Las Vegas Silver Statesmen Hold First Meeting
The Silver Statesmen Barbershop Chorus met on Thursday, January 3rd, for its inaugural meeting as a new chorus. It was attended by over 60 men whose professed hobby is barbershop singing.
This new chorus brings a wealth of experience from many years of barbershop in the Las Vegas Valley. Combining the two previous choruses, the Gamble-Aires, which has been in existence since 1960, and the City of Lights, which was established in 1998, the Silver Statesmen comes out of the gate with a full roster of talented singers.
The new chorus has announced the election of their first president, Steve Salmon. Steve was the director of the City of Lights chorus and enjoys the fact that two of his sons are also members of the Silver Statesmen. Referring to the first meeting of the chorus, President Salmon stated, “Tonight was an exciting night. What a super way to start out the new year. With over 60 men committed to singing their best, this will be a great year for Barbershop Harmony. We would love to double our membership in the next 12 months. Those who love to sing should definitely come to a rehearsal.”
On Saturday, January 5th, the Silver Statesmen held the annual Installation and Awards Banquet to announce the board members for 2013 and to honor the men who were instrumental this past year in furthering the goals of the Barbershop Harmony Society within their respective chapters.
The Silver Statesmen Chorus invites men of all ages to join. The chorus rehearses at 7 p.m., each Thursday, at the Christ the King Catholic Community Church, 4925 S. Torrey Pines Dr., Las Vegas, NV 89118.
