Fleet Street members try out the acoustics in Stanford’s new library
While scouting new campus locations for rehearsals and performances, four members of STANFORD FLEET STREET SINGERS, an all-male a cappella group, tried out the acoustics in a seminar room in the new Lathrop Library. They liked what they heard. So did ROBERT EMERY SMITH, director of technology services for the University Registrar, who encountered them on a recent visit to the building, which will open Sept. 15. He shot a video of the group singing a barbershop tag, which ended “There’s got to be a brighter day.” Left to right, the singers are: JAMES GARTH, WESTON GAYLORD, JOEL CHAPMAN and ANDREW FORSYTH.
