In Praise of Happy Accidents
Annette Lambrecht fell into music through a happy accident.
“I was about four-and-a-half years old, and it was the summer before kindergarten,” says the winner of the 2017 NAfME/Sweet Adelines International Music Educator Award. “I fell and broke my arm, and part of the physical therapy was taking piano lessons, so I could write. And that’s how I got started in music: I loved the piano, and I loved my music teacher.”
After 80 Years, The Barbershop Harmony Society Will Allow Women To Join
If you're at all familiar with the modern perception of barbershop singing, you might have guessed that one of its leading organizations, the Barbershop Harmony Society, was an all-male — and all-white — organization at the time of its founding in 1938. The organization opened to people of color in 1963, as the country was living within the crucible of the civil rights movement. For 80 years, though, it remained closed to women. Until yesterday.
