Even in recovering from the loss of a strong 2016 core that featured powerhouse singers such as Sebastian Themelis, Dan Zakon, Phil Bailey, Seamus Clair alongside Dr. Slaughter, the 2017 B-Flats have had an excellent start to the year. Led by Brother Patterson and newly elected president Theo Why and Vice President Owen Pickette, this year’s sophomore-dominated B-flats have shown great promise and hope for a successful year that has so far culminated in a rowdy chapel performance of the classic tune “Lean on Me” and an impressive performance at the BH Open House.
The group embarks on the challenge of dueling the Roxbury Latin School in a sing-off in the upcoming weeks and has prepared endlessly to perfect a series of abstract Italian songs. Shifting gears, a new B-flats development weighs heavily on the minds of the group: after years of planning from Mr. Harder and Brother P., the B-Flats are finalizing the details of a trip that would take the talents of the group overseas to Prague, not only with the intention to sing, but also to see the historical landmarks of the city. In anticipation of this trip, B-flats members have invested in stylish and savvy new blazers (designed by stalwart Luca Pontone) that will make their appearances throughout B-flats performances as the group embarks on this promising new year.
