Take Me Out to the Ball Game!
Celebrate "Barbershop Harmony Day" with VoCal at the Sacramento RiverCats game on August 14. Watch Gabe throw the first pitch! Join the massed chorus on the field for the Seventh Inning Stretch! Barbershoppers from all over are invited to participate in this fun event.
On the evening of Monday, August 14th, the Sacramento RiverCats (baseball team) will be having Barbershop Harmony Day out at Raley Fields. Voices of California will be singing the National Anthem and will do a short performance from the field right before game time. Our Director, Gabe Caretto, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. We are reaching out to barbershoppers from all over Northern California to come help us make the 14,000 attendees at the game EXTREMELY aware of what barbershop harmony is and that there are opportunities for them to sing right in their own backyard or to attend our shows.
In order for Barbershop Harmony Day to occur, we need to sell 200 tickets on our own to barbershoppers, families and friends. Here's where you come in: in addition to just attending the game and enjoying some good singing, we want to provide YOU a chance to be part of the performing and for YOUR chorus (whether male or female) to get some publicity. If you can get together a group of at least 10 folks that will buy tickets and come to the game, we'd love to have you out on the field during the 7th inning stretch, singing Take Me Out to the Ballgame with our massed chorus of barbershoppers. We'll also get your chorus' name up on the big screen so all the Raley Field patrons know YOUR chorus exists.
Tickets are $25 each and are available at http://tinyurl.com/BarbershopAtRiverCats, using the discount code: BARBERSHOP.
It should be a VERY fun evening, with a chance to see lots of friends, enjoy a ballgame, and to help make the world know more about our great hobby. The date again is Monday, August 14th. Doors open at 6:05 and game time is 7:05pm.
