Sol Weber Rounds Parties Audio
Sol Weber Rounds Parties – Audio
Sol Weber, with his ROUNDMAN licence plates, in a lifetime of collecting and singing these unique little gems known as rounds, led gatherings at festivals, music and dance camps, in living rooms, and in various other nooks and crannies. New York Magazine featured a full page article, including a novel photo of Sol ostensibly singing all three parts of a round. CNN followed that up with an artfully crafted segment, filmed at two gatherings.
Sol died in June 2019 at 85. His devotees and friends continue to hold rounds parties. The gatherings are held in John Hetland's loft apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, the same place the Renaissance Street Singers rehearse.
