The Hevelone Center is set to host another concert this month, featuring the Homestead Harmonizers’ annual spring concert on March 17 and 18.
The chorus will be performing their two-day spring show, “How the West was Sung,” on Saturday, March 17 at 7 p.m., with an additional show on Sunday, March 18 at 2 p.m.
The concert will feature western favorites like “Home on the Range,” Chorus Manager Darryl Baker said. It will also include a performance by the Benson family singers in the Hevelone Center at Beatrice High School.
This year, the Homestead Harmonizers are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the organization’s founding. The camaraderie and a shared love of music make the chorus a very tight-knit group.
“We just love to sing,” Baker said, “and we have some pretty awesome programs.”
There are currently 45 active members of the barbershop chorus, though the group invites newcomers to join, so long as they can carry a tune. New members are sorted into different sections of the chorus, based on their vocal abilities. This includes bass, baritone, lead and tenor sections.
“You really don’t need to be an accomplished musician,” Director Scott Spilker said. “We’ll teach you.”
