Siegal, Neal American Barbershop Harmony Music
The Big Apple Chorus is the performing arm of the Manhattan Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The Chorus consists of up to 80-men and as few as a traditional 4-man barbershop quartet. Programs have been customized for each patron and requirement but all incorporate early 20th century American popular songs from Tin Pan Alley, Vaudville and early Broadway performed in the uniquely American, Barbershop A Cappella, harmony idiom. Performances are high energy, include light comedy and choreography. As a Manhattan Based group our mission is: Bringing the best of Barbershop to Broadway and te best of Broadway to Barbershop.

Bromka, Sondra & John 'The Boy Who Went to Visit the North Wind' Participatory Storytelling + 'Who Has Heard the Wind' Children's Concert History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Sondra and John Bromka bring audiences on a wind-swept journey to 'long ago and far away' with the telling of this fine traditional tale. Look forward to an energetic tandem storytelling performance that is underscored with live music on Celtic harp, enriched with historic authenticity, and alive with abundant participation that is well suited to audiences of all ages. A tale of wonder, magic, and heroism, the story unfolds when a poor boy's meal is unwittingly blown away, taken to the four corners of the earth by the all-powerful North Wind, and cannot be returned. In exchange, a magic tablecloth, magic donkey, and magic stick are three marvelous gifts offered by the Wind. But in the end, the most important gift of all is surely the North Wind's sage advice: 'All you have to do is keep your eyes & ears open.' As in the best of traditional folktales, there is the timeless appeal of a thought provoking theme. Here, justice & fairness are of universal concern to young children. And they will enjoy their favorite storytelling elements: patterns and repetition, personification, and especially, the wondrous and curious ways of 'long ago & far away.'

Performing Arts- Other
I am available to play nearly any type of music, centering on folk, rock, kids, country,and bluegrass. With an interactive, humorous slant, I prefer to have folks singalong, suggest songs, and even write tunes as we go. I prefer intimate settings, (small groups are better) such as house concerts, living room-type performances, private gatherings, but I'm not limited by the size of the group.
