A Cappella Showcase News...

The Monterey Bay Belles Women’s Barbershop Chorus hosted the fourth annual A Cappella Showcase on Saturday March 11, 2017 at the Community Church of the Monterey Peninsula in beautiful Carmel Valley. The fun-filled evening was highlighted by a performance by the all mens group, Pitch Please, of San Jose State University. This Showcase was the result of the Youth In Harmony program spearheaded by Kristen Thompson in 2009.  Since then, her quartet Vocal Point and the men’s quartet, the Cannery Rogues have sung for almost every school in the county. Proceeds from the Showcase benefited the schools who participated by singing including: Buena Vista Middle School, Chartwell School, Salinas High School, Spreckels Elementary, and Trinity High School. Each participating school earned $300.00 for their vocal music programs.  The Monterey Bay Belles wish to acknowledge and thank the Arts Council for Monterey County for grant funding in the amount of $3500.00 making the A Cappella Showcase possible.
