The power of music continues to amaze. We would like to share with you a touching story where friends and music combined both in the moment and forever in memories.
Andrew Shackleton, a dear friend and member of the Twin City Harmonizers was in our minds as the chorus performed in our 2017 spring show. Andrew was an amazing person and good friend. We knew he was in hospice care. Ron Coulter, another friend and member of the Twin City Harmonizers recently posted this moving story on Facebook:
I'll always remember the time Ruthe Martin agreed to shoot the Twin City Harmonizers' spring show on Saturday, May 6, 2017. After the show, she asked the men to sing for Andrew Shackelton, who, at the time was in hospice. She recorded the song and posted it to YouTube. My phone buzzed at approximately 11pm. When I realized what it was, I said, "Hey, Andy. The boys are singing for you!" He had been unresponsive for two days at that point, but, when he heard the singing, he raised his hands and directed the chorus. It was an amazing and unforgettable moment. Ruthe and Andrew were both incredibly special people. Rest in peace, Ruthe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o95r6Md6vcs
We hope that all our friends and families stay healthy during this difficult time. The Twin City Harmonizer's meetings are currently suspended. We all look forward to getting back together in the future and performing shows again.
We will update the website and e-mail everyone in our mailing list when we have further information. If you are not on our mailing list, you can subscribe to the list on this home page.
