A big thrill for us at the Barbershop Convention this past week was when super-hot movie star Orlando Bloom (Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Troy) accepted an invitation and came to the Swingle Singers concert. He, along with costars Kirsten Dunst and Susan Sarandon, are in Louisville shooting the new movie Elizabethtown (directed by Cameron Crowe). When the Swingles were told he was staying in the same hotel as them they arranged to have sent up a CD with a note inviting him to the concert that night. He indeed came and stayed for the whole show including the opening set by Four Voices and Voices of Lee. At the reception afterwards he said that he had never heard such music before and really enjoyed it. As probably one of the hippest of current celebrities it was certainly cool that he came to the show and seem to genuinely enjoy the music.
