We’re getting the year off to a great start on January 16th with the 13th Annual Sing For Your Life choral festival. For more than a decade, The Gold Standard Chorus has sponsored this festival to showcase local area high school and college choirs, to raise money that goes directly to each participating school’s vocal music program, and to encourage the youth in those choirs and our audience members alike to “Sing For Your Life.”
Choir members and GSC chorus members sell tickets to friends, family, and anyone else they can reach out to. Sing For Your Life has generated over $70,000 for participating schools in the last 12 years. Music teachers use these funds for sheet music, accompanist salaries, field trips, and other items not covered by shrinking school budgets. The generosity of dozens of local business and individual sponsors, as well as tickets purchased from GSC members, offset production costs and make it possible to distribute nearly 100% of ticket sales proceeds directly to the schools. The concert also promotes a lifelong love of music by demonstrating community singing opportunities such as the all-age Gold Standard Chorus, encouraging students and audiences alike to “Sing For Your Life.”
In addition, every year we bring in a stellar guest quartet to share their love of life-long singing with the students and adults alike. This year is no exception. This year we’re pleased to present Flightline, four young men who exemplify a love and quality of music that never fails to bring audiences to their feet.
Founded just 2 1/2 years ago, Flightline has risen quickly to become one of the finest barbershop quartets of any age in the country. Flightline is the Far Western District gold medal quartet champion of 2015, and will be representing the district at International this year. In addition to their district gold medal, they are medalists on the International level, placing 5th in 2015 at the International Barbershop Harmony Society Competition and Convention in the Collegiate Division. These gentlemen will knock your socks off!
