From Harmonizers Past

In 1962, The Fort Worth Chapter, then known as the Cowtown Chorus, appeared on the cover of the March-April issue of The Harmonizer displaying the multi-colored uniforms worn on the opening night of Casa Manana’s “Music Man” performance the previous summer. I was perusing this issue recently when an article titled “The Way I See It” caught my eye. Among other things, this piece extols the value of Barbershop Harmony as local entertainment. This may not be news, but to this day we still have the same or similar discussions/debates. I would venture to say that with minor changes to names and dates, about the only clue that the article had been published over 50 years ago would be the reference to atom bombs.
