What a weekend we had at the Central States District Fall 2013 Convention held in Kansas City Missouri. Singing is our passion, but singing well is our goal – we know that the better our performance, the more enjoyment it brings to both our audience and ourselves. On October 12th, the Continentals performed in the CSD Chorus competition and came home with the awards for Most Improved Chorus and Plateau AA Championship. We can’t wait to see how much more we can improve and grow from here.
Congratulations to one of our own, Jon Peterson, who was inducted into the Central States District’s Hall of Fame during the Fall 2013 District Convention held in Kansas City Missouri. Jon’s dedication to music education has not only enhanced the musical talent of Lincoln Continentals Chorus, he has introduced the joy and passion of barbershop harmony to countless high school men in eastern Nebraska. Well Done, Jon!!
Maybe you watch The Sing Off. And maybe you used to sing in church choir, in high school, or perhaps in college and would like to possibly get back into singing or explore what a cappella harmony is all about. There is an a cappella group right here in Lincoln which offers the opportunity to perform in public with annual show productions, community performances, and regional competition. Not only that, but there are opportunities to use individual talents (or maybe you would like to develop a talent) for show production, writing scripts, choreography, emceeing, and a host of other functions – either musical or administrative – that support a thriving performing organization.
But – the best part is singing harmony. If it’s done correctly, it’s challenging – but not that hard! You don’t need to be a “classically trained” vocalist to fit in. You just need the ability to carry a tune. We provide music and learning tracks. Our members learn all their music by listening to part-predominant tracks. Vocal technique training is given as a group to maximize the quality of the vocal ensemble sound.
So, if you would like to see what it’s all about, visit any Thursday evening rehearsal, 7:15pm, at the Cotner Center Auditorium, 1540 N Cotner Blvd.
We’re a friendly, fun-loving bunch of guys who love to sing and always welcome guests. Come check us out – no strings attached!!!
We love to perform, and our entire chorus is available for your event. We provide good family oriented entertainment that is enjoyed by all. And you won’t believe the sound! It is truly a joyous sound. Our performance rates vary based on the length and location of performance and the size of your group. More Information
