Voices in Harmony : Now & Then

Review: Founded in 2006 by members of the Bay Area Metro Chorus and Garden City Chorus of San Jose CA, VIH is directed by world-renowned conductor Dr. Greg Lynn. "Northern California's Premier Men's A Cappella Chorus" boasts a membership of 131, from ages 16 to 99, and they recently returned from their first international tour, of Russia in August, 2009. Dr. Lynn very quickly turned Voices in Harmony into one of the finest a cappella choruses in the world, winning a 3rd Place Bronze medal at the Barbershop Harmony Society's 2008 International Choral Competition in Nashville, TN. The 14 songs of "Now & Then" are pure, heartstring-tugging oldies, sung by guys who love to harmonize together-in short, the very stuff of which Barbershop was made! Be it The Turtles' "Happy Together" from 1966, the Swing hit "Beyond the Sea" from 1945, the Streisand hit "The Way We Were" from 1974, Hank Williams' classic "Hey Good Lookin'" from 1951, Brian Wilson's anthem "Surfer Girl" from 1963 or Jerome Kern and and Otto Harbach's "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" from 1933-we know and love these songs. How many times have we heard Billy Joel's "And So It Goes," "Little Boy Lost," "There Used To Be a Ballpark Right Here" and "This Is Some Lucky Day"-and how many times would we like to hear them again, nailed by a top-drawer men's chorus? As a special treat, the last three bonus tracks on "Now & Then," "Diane," "Little Pal" and "In A Shanty in Old Shanty Town" are all live cuts from the 2008 BHS competition. Barbershop quartets Late Show and Realtime are special guest performers with VIH. Great stuff from local boys who made very good, very fast in the Barbershop world!

Songlist: Happy Together, Beyond the Sea, The Way We Were, Little Boy Lost, Hey Good Lookin', Surfer Girl - Late Show Quartet, There Used to Be a Ballpark Right Here, This Is Some Lucky Day , And So It Goes, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, With A Little Help From My Friends, Diane, Little Pal, In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town
