OTHQ performed for our annual winter party for our condo association of mostly seniors, although there are a few younger ones mixed in, so appealing to all is a challenge. OTHQ did just that; they were entertaining, interacted with our group and even the most sour of the sourpusses were laughing. On top of that, they were good! It was a night of good clean entertainment and everything went off without a hitch. Thank you for a great time!
Singing BASS is Don Horton, the olde timer in the group having been a Society member for 50 years. Don sings BASS, LEAD & BARITONE and has sung in many quartets over the past 50 years. He is a Real Estate Broker and Appraiser and lives with his wife Sandy (of 59 plus years). Don's Love for Barbershopping began in a college quartet at Ferris State University (Ferris Institute in 1957). Don is the major spokesman for the quartet but is often backed up by surprises from other quartet members. Spontaneous Interplay can be VERY entertaining.
Singing LEAD, & BARI is Paul Nolte the newest member having joined the quartet in July of 2017. Paul says, I sang in a high school quartet and is a 28 year member of the Barbershop Harmony Society. He also sings with Memory Lane and Bluetonium quartets. He also performs single as a ONE MAN BAND called NOSTALGIA Broadcasting Company (live Music & Comedy). Paul will add some interesting Fun Variety to our performances.
Singing BARITONE and occasional LEAD is Dr. Tim Oliver. Tim has been a member of the Society and the Lansing Chapter for the past 15 years. He and Don sang together in the Sufficient Grounds quartet for 8 years. They also sang together in the District Senior's Championship Quartet "Weekend Agenda" prior to teaming up in the Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet and switching parts. Tim is a former member of the MSU, Spartan Marching Band. GO GREEN!! He received his medical degree from Wayne State University and completed residency in Family Practice in Saginaw. He is a member of the medical staff at Memorial Healthcare Center. He and his wife Marcia reside in Owosso. Tim's Love for Barbershopping began when he sang LEAD in a quartet in the fabulous MUSIC MAN performance by the Owosso Community Players about 17 years ago.
Last but NOT least singing TENOR & occasional BASS in the quartet is Jacob Welty. The baby of the quartet at 29 years of age is without a doubt the most talented of the quartet. Jacob lives in Fenton Michigan with his Mom and Dad and 5 brother and sisters. Jacob is a handyman by trade AND DOES IT ALL. Musically he does it ALL too. Jacob has perfect pitch and the voice range to sing ALL four parts. He is a self-trained musician who has arranged several songs for the quartet. He sings a Beautiful solo on "IF" the 1970's song made popular by the group called BREAD
