A capella performance in Franklin Aug. 15

The all-male Land of the Sky Chorus will sing classics in “Schtick to Singing,” a concert held 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 15, in Tartan Hall at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Franklin.

With more than thirty members, Land of Sky sings lively a cappella renditions of old-time and contemporary favorites in four-part harmony. The upcoming program features hits like “Make ‘em Laugh,” “It’s Only A Paper Moon,” “That’s An Irish Lullaby,” and “Somewhere” from “West Side Story,” with costumes and props to enliven the show, and a heavy sprinkling of rib-tickling humor. Complimentary ice cream sundaes will be served.

Land of the Sky Chorus is a chapter of SPEBSQSA, Inc., one of about 800 society chapters in North America. The chorus is based in Asheville and has performed for audiences throughout the region and beyond.

Suggested donation is $5. Doors open at 2:30.

This program is sponsored by the Arts Council of Macon County. 828.524.7683 or www.artscouncilofmacon.org.

We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home.
