Master class with Deke Sharon!

The weather was frightful, but we had a delighful time at the local mater class with Deke Sharon!

We and four other groups got up on stage as Deke worked through some important skill in a cappella signing for the audience. We had a wonderufl time singing "To make you feel my love" for him and the audience.  Deke also shared some lovely a cappella history with the audience - did you know that the first a cappella recording is of barbershop on a wax cylinder?

Deke truly has a passion for a cappella music - there's a reason they call him the "godfather of a cappella"!
