Have any members dated?
We had a proposal in a performance
once. We have two meteorologists. They
were dating. They met each other in
school. So in the middle of the concert he
surprised her with a duet and then proposed. The whole rest of the choir was
crying behind them. We did one more
song after that, and then we had to end
it, because how do you top that?
We have some choir couples. We
always go out to Quarry House after
rehearsals—we have a bass singer who
married a waitress at Quarry House.
What makes Six Degree Singers different
from other choral groups in the area?
The type of music we perform is primarily secular music. I program thematically.
The theme of our January concert series
is love songs and waltzes. So it’s Brahms’
Liebeslieder Waltzes and love songs from
across the ages: some jazz, some Renaissance, some world, some folk, some
contemporary. My main goal has always
been to make our performances accessible to our audience and to get people
exposed to new music.
What would you like to see the group doing in
We really care about getting into the
community and sharing our music with
people who might not necessarily be into
classical music. It’s about connecting, but
it’s about education, too. We’re exceeding
the bounds of what people think choral
I’d like to do a flash mob somewhere
like downtown Silver Spring, where you
wouldn’t expect to hear choral music, but
you’d be happy that it was there.
