Westchester Chordsmen Delight Crowds at the Garden


It was a beautiful day in New York today and I went with my wife and baby daughter to the Holiday Tree Lighting and Sing-Along at The New York Botanical Garden.  Yankees broadcaster Ken Singleton joined local elected officials in lighting the glorious trees and menorah at the Leon Levy Visitor Center.  One of the highlights of the day (besides the opening of the much anticipated 18th annual Holiday Train Show) was the performance by the very talented group of men who make up the Westchester Chordsmen Chorus.

The Westchester Chordsmen sang a number of holiday songs including Christmas and Hanukkah favorites, delighting the enthusiastic crowd, young and old.  Those guys can really sing!  Some lucky kids joined in for a nice rendition of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." 

The Chordsmen really impressed me.  They definitely brought a smile to everyone's faces.  Here's some more information about them: "The Westchester Chordsmen are a Championship Barbershop Chorus made up of men from Westchester County, NY; Fairfield County, CT; and Long Island, NY. They sing a wide variety of close harmony songs in shows presented throughout the year.  Regular Westchester Chordsmen meetings are Mondays at 7:00 p.m. Guests are most welcome at EVERY meeting. Meetings are held in the auditorium of the White Plains Middle School (Highlands School) on Old Mamaroneck Road in White Plains, NY. For further information about membership or having the chorus sing for your group, call the Westchester Chordsmen Hot Line 1-800-413-7153."
