2nd City Chorus offers annual show Oct. 8
By Ron Parrett
If you like to laugh, hear good music, dance and eat delicious food, the Community Center Complex of Boone County is the place to be at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 8. This will be a special night when the multi-award-winning 2nd City Chorus will present its annual show, “2nd City Forest.”
The first set of this production is very different from previous performances in that it is based on an actual event when our director of the chorus, Joe Tomecek, struck a deer on his way to a barbershop competition last year. Through parody, song, script and costuming, this original mini-musical tells this story from the deer’s point of view, which makes it a unique, humorous and sometimes poignant presentation.
The chorus will also sing some songs in their regular uniform with standard lyrics, and the well-known and always entertaining quartets tsunami and Second Opinion will sing more traditional numbers from their repertoire.
Additionally, as in recent years past, The Miller’s Home Town Band will perform for your dancing and listening pleasure.
Along with a variety of food, a cash bar will be available. Reserved table seating is $20 each and can be purchased from any chorus member, at the door or by contacting me, Ron Parrett, at (815) 332-5611.
The chorus just returned from the Barbershop Harmony Society Illinois District Contest in late September, where they placed in the top five and were honored by receiving the Most Entertaining Small Chorus Award.
The Community Center Complex of Boone County is at 111 W. First St., Belvidere.
