The “Mars Rovers” Barbershop Quartet is part of the Greater Cranberry Men’s A Capella Chorus. Information about the Greater Cranberry Men’s A Capella Chorus can be found on their website: www.cranberrymenschorus.com. The organization is a good-natured group of guys, who have come together to sing harmony and enjoy the pure enjoyment of performing. They strive to foster a love for barbershop music and continue to grow within the community through their shared experience.
The “Mars Rovers” are members of the Barbershop Harmony Society; Johnny Appleseed District, which includes Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, all of Ohio and the northern tip of Kentucky. Locally, they draw from the Greater Cranberry Twp. area of Pennsylvania and beyond. The “Mars Rovers” are available to sing for just about any kind of event which celebrates four-part close harmony in the barbershop style.
Our performers this week are:
Bass – Paul Aiello
Baritone – Bob Warner
Lead – Dick Weaver
Tenor – Chris Havenflu
The “Mars Rovers” typically sing at a Veteran’s’ Day events, Nursing Homes, and have an annual concert at North Hills Catholic H.S. in May. They also do Christmas Caroling and sing for Valentines and other events.
August 2, 2019 Meeting
Roberto Clemente Museum
Our speaker August 2 will Vince Mariotti of the Roberto Clemente Museum. Mr. Mariotti will tell us about the man and the museum.
Roberto Clemente was born in 1934. Had he lived, he would be the age of many SMC members. But he died in his 30’s. Roberto’s record in baseball was outstanding: Average .317; home runs 240; first Hall of Fame player from the Caribbean. Number 21 played right field for the Pirates for his entire career. Many think his image as a humanitarian outshine his athletics.
Located in Engine House # 25 between the Strip and Lawrenceville. The Robert Clemente Museum tells the story. Normally open by appointment, Vince Mariotti will give a peek inside.
Join us August 2. Might be a good day to don your Pirate shirt or hat.
