Wildrose Harmonizers providing sounds of the season Sunday
Fun and breezy sounds of the season will be delivered by the Wildrose Harmonizers at the group’s Noel Noel charitable concert on Sunday.
The male barbershop chorus will perform a variety of Christmas standards, such as Jingle Bell Rock and Noel, Noel, at the Davenport Church of Christ in Red Deer to benefit the Red Deer Clothing Bank.
The Harmonizers will also serve up some novelty songs that are bound to break out the smiles — such as Christmas Chopsticks, All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth and Santa’s Got a Tummy Tuck.
“We thought we’d do some fun, different songs this year,” said the group’s president David Crozier-Smith. “It should be a good family afternoon.”
Crozier-Smith added that barbershop singing is all about four-part harmonies, so the audience will hear lead, tenor, baritone and bass sections unite to create a heavenly sound. “When you put it all together, it really makes the chorus ring.”
The 25-member group directed by Roberta Koelmans-Cameron will be joined by special guests, the Hearts of Harmony women’s barbershop chorus and the Lindsay Thurber High School Chorus.
Audience members will also get to participate in some sing-along carols.
Tickets to the 2 p.m. concert at 68 Donlevy Ave. are $10 at the door. All proceeds will go to the Red Deer Clothing Bank. Donations of non-perishable food items will also be collected for the Red Deer Food Bank.
