A Cappella Group Delights DC Suburb

Postby Amy Malkoff » Sat Aug 04, 2012 4:56 pm

Alexandria, a city in Virginia near the nation's capital, has many attractions especially in a district called Old Town. One music group, formed more than six decades ago there, is a pride of the city.

The group is made up of about 100 men ranging in age from 19 to 83. They have one thing in common: A passion for singing.  

Every Tuesday night, since after the end of World War II, the group gathers here to rehearse.  They're the Alexandria Harmonizers.  

Many members are in their 70s and 80s.  Jack Pitzer joined at age 23.  Now he is 70.
