The Heritage Harmony Barbershop Chorus will be putting on a special performance this coming weekend in Nelson.

Spring choral event covers the spectrum

The Heritage Harmony Barbershop Chorus and Nelson Choral Society are joining forces

The Heritage Harmony Barbershop Chorus and Nelson Choral Society are joining forces to entertain vocal music enthusiasts in a spring concert I Believe In Music. Also participating are some young men of the Corazon choir who recently returned from performing in Cuba and the Kootenay Expressions barbershop quartet.

The Saturday performances are scheduled for 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Bethel Church on Gordon Road.  Tickets are available at the door, from chorus members or from John Glockner at 250-352-6892.

“A variety of genres will be presented,” says Heritage Harmony Barbershop Chorus director Tim Joveski. “With the Barbershop Chorus and men from Corazon emphasizing the popular doo-wop songs of the ‘50s and ‘60s.”

The Nelson Choral Society, under the direction of Kathleen Neudorf, will perform a variety of spiritual, love and inspirational songs, representing several countries. The Choral Society, which has been a vital part of Nelson’s cultural scene for many years, has between 40 and 80 members performing four-part choral works with piano or orchestra each spring and Christmas.

Heritage Harmony Barbershop Men’s Chorus sings to support local events and performs numerous free Christmas concerts for shut in seniors around town.

This is the first collaboration by the two Nelson groups.
