The “Eatonton Harmonettes,” a women’s a cappella singing group organized in January, present the classic example of having a dream, making it a goal and working to achieve it.
Lu Feldman is responsible for putting the group together and bringing the women to where they are today.
Feldman moved to Eatonton after living in New York, where she gained experience by singing with a group for seven years and performing in musical theater for 12 years.
“When we first started meeting, I said to the ladies, ‘I’m not a director, I’m a baritone,’” Feldman said. “But we’ve been working very well together.”
A typical a cappella group sings four-part harmony in what is known as “barbershop style.”
