We've been in love with the story of the Dondero A Cappella Choir and Pop Concert Instruments concerts for ages now. Our tenth anniversary shows on both the morning and night time shows were dedicated to telling the full story of Rick Hartsoe and these amazing performances, and we features tons of music, as well as an extensive interview with Mr. Hartsoe. The interview was both enlightening and emotional, and if you're a fan of Dondero you owe it to yourself to listen. You'll really enjoy it.
The Dondero story is one of youthful enthusiasm, musical passion, and a teacher that went above and beyond for his students. Mr. Hartsoe pushed his students to really inhabit the music, getting as close as possible to the original performances of popular songs as possible, and the results were nothing less than magical.
Right now there is a Kickstarter campaign to get the story of the Dondero A Cappella concerts into book form. Peter Wurdock has been working on his book Two Guitars, Bass and Drums: The History of the Dondero Pop Concert since 2006, and the book is ready to publish and present to the world. He's looking for completion funds to get the book printed up, and you can help out. Any amount will help, but if you pledge $25 you can get a copy of this great story. The campaign is only half way there with eighteen days to go, so time is of the essence.
