To obtain the songs and permission to perform them, please contact me directly at Lois-sezatLois-sez.com, replacing the word "at" with the "@" symbol and putting in the subject line of "Norma Andersen's Music." My personal work of storytelling comes first, but I will do whatever I can to help you.
In her lifetime my aunt, Norma Andersen, wanted to spread the love of barbershop music. As a result she charged only a minimal amount for copies and permission. I want to see her music remain alive and have agreed to continue making it available, just as she did, to other barbershop groups around the world. Her copyrights have all been transferred to me.

That's still true BUT it turns out my bank now charges me an international funds transfer fee! Similarly international groups sometimes prefer PayPal. PayPal's fee for a business transaction + their fixed fee based on the currency removes even more from the minimal $50 which Norma charged.
My aunt loved working with barbershop groups around the world, so I will keep to the same minimal amount she charged -- I'm not doing this to fatten my bank account -- but will need to add the amount of any fees to the total. <sigh!>
The good news is that the group who didn't have to pay that extra unexpected fee will be singing it all over Australia and Tasmania. Since Australia is commonly abbreviated Oz by the residents, I'm sure my aunt thinks it's great to have her music heard in Oz! I look forward to hearing more about how the performances are being received...truly a G'day.
