Thomas Nalley Joins LeFevre Quartet

December 26, 2012 By: Aaron Category: LeFevre Quartet, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music

By way of announcement from his Facebook page, the news has hit that the LeFevre Quartet is welcoming Thomas Nalley into the tenor position for the group after the departure of Harold Reed. Nalley has spent the past two years as tenor for Providence Quartet, a group featured as a showcase winner on main stage at NQC 2012, and his first date with the group will be this Saturday.

In a recent conversation with a friend, we got on the subject of Providence Quartet, and Thomas Nalley in particular. Some video clips were sent back and forth, and I wondered why we haven’t heard more from this guy before. I enjoyed the fact that he seems to know his limits, resulting in less “forced” sounding tones. Look for Nalley to turn some heads with this group, especially once the group can solidify and carry on with a new bass singer (no word on a pick for that spot yet).

Here’s some clips of Nalley with his former group. Included is their NQC appearance:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I’m still here! It’s been a while since I last posted, but the “real world” kind of infringed on my plans for posting on here. After some consideration, I’ve decided to take a semi-break until the new year begins, so unless something major happens between now and then, this will be my last post for 2012. Hopefully, this brief period will allow me to re-energize and get back to posting news, CD reviews, and more!

As always, thank you for reading, and may you and yours have a blessed Christmas season and a great time of reflection and renewal as we enter 2013!
