Adieu, Ralph

June 13, 2017 - 7:48am -- Victor Fitzpatrick

On June 11, the Cascade Chorus honored the memory of Ralph Gazeley, a long- time member at his memorial service.  He had not sung with us for the past several years due to declining health.  At his request from several years ago, we sang the Lord’s Prayer and The Irish Blessing. 

Ralph was responsible for starting three new Barbershop Harmony Society choruses in Oregon, two of which are still going strong.  Members from the Coos Bay chapter and former Corvallis chapter joined Cascade as we bid Ralph farewell. We will miss him now but know that we will meet him again.

The performance at Lowell

June 13, 2017 - 7:32am -- Victor Fitzpatrick

The Cascade Chorus sang on the Lowell High School spring choral program.  Jim Chapman directed the chorus in Coby’s absence which was kind of special since Jim taught music there several years ago, not allowed to say how many.  He said it had been 32 years since we had performed there and hoped that it would not take that long to get invited back.  Jim and his entire family have a long history with Lowell HS and in fact is on the school board.
