“It’s the Music That Brings Us Together” was gifted to all barbershoppers by the composer and arranger, Clay Hine. “This song was written shortly after “shelter-in-place” for COVID-19 started. As with many barbershop ensembles, my chorus had just started virtual rehearsals…and it was inspiring to see how many barbershoppers still wanted to find ways to rehearse, learn more, and talk about music…and most importantly, stay connected to all of our barbershop friends. It’s easy for me to get emotional about the impact barbershop has had on my life, but with the craziness of everyday life, we don’t always get a lot of opportunities to remember WHY barbershop is so important in our lives. Sharing a song or a great tag with friends is one thing that made us all go nuts for barbershop in the first place. Even when we’re not able to sing together, it’s incredibly inspiring and helps us remember WHY when so many still do so much to virtually get together with the friends that make music so meaningful to all of us.” ~Clay Hine
