Twice each month a different Barbershop arranger will be featured, along with 3-4 of his/her recent works. One of them might be great for your chorus or quartet.

Kay Bromert

Kay Bromert has been a Sweet Adeline since 1976 and has been arranging almost that long. She's currently a Certified Music Arranger with SAI. She has sung in two different choruses, and when she lived in Peru, South America, she directed a prospective chorus for a couple of years. Currently she sings baritone (aren't most arrangers baritones??) in Harmony Central Chorus, Des Moines, Iowa, and Special Arrangement Quartet, and they sing a lot of her arrangements. Kay has 15 Christmas arrangements on her list and more in the works. She also is set up to accept both PayPal and credit cards on her website. This makes it easier for people in other countries as well as the US to purchase her arrangements. She also does custom arrangements, so interested folks can contact her for more information about that.

Sister Mead's Lord's Prayer - this is an upbeat version of the Lord's Prayer, with bass rhythm pattern while the top 3 parts sing the song itself. Kay's quartet sings this, and when they've sung it for church services, they've gotten rousing applause, which doesn't usually happen in church!

Mr. Wonderful - a competition ballad of the 1950's song, it has a comfortable singing range for all four parts. It would make a great Singing Valentine song to be sung to a man.

Valentine - this is an arrangement of Jim Brickman's beautiful song. It features a bass solo and is one of her most requested arrangements.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow - this is an easy arrangement of a familiar holiday song. Kay tries to keep her Christmas arrangements simple, since their "life span" during the year is short, and that way they can be learned quickly and then picked up again just as quickly the following year.
