Area Young Menís And Adult Choirs Gather With Top Clinician

November 2, 2013

New Harmony Handful

Area residents were treated to a free concert with all three Leeís Summit high school boysí choirs and several community singing groups. They combined for a unique presentation Tuesday, October 29, 2013, at the Unity Village Auditorium. The singing began at 11:30 a.m. and concluded with Lewis-OíConnor conducting all singers in a mass number.

The choirs from Leeís Summit High, North and West joined the Kansas City Menís Chorus, the Leeís Summitís Methodist Men of Note, and the New Harmony Handful from the Kansas City Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

Headlining the session, as clinician, was Gabe Lewis OíConnor, who just completed four seasons as bass with the Grammy award-winning ensemble Chanticleer.

OíConnor, who has sung across the U.S. and in Europe and is back in the K.C. Metro area conducting, recording and performing. He has also sung with the Kansas City Chorale.

The session was the brainchild of longtime Rotarian, Raytown and Leeís Summit music educator, administrator and choir director Larry Keisker, who now directs the Men of Note. "We wanted young men to see there are lots of singing opportunities after they leave high school, even if they donít go into music as a profession," Keisker said. "Here they get a chance to hear a community chorus, religious and gospel songs Ė even barbershop harmony Ė and get some coaching from one of the best clinicians in the country at the same time."

The Leeís Summit High School boys are directed by Ryan Sullivan and Chris Munce. Leeís Summit Westís choir is directed by Amy Krinke and Sullivan. And Leeís Summit North is under the leadership of Steve Perry and Jonathan Krinke.

Veteran Noel Fulkerson directs the Kansas City Menís Chorus and the New Harmony Handful are directed by Jim Bagby.
