Last updated 7/5/2007 at Noon
VISTA — Forget all your preconceived notions about barbershop – that it’s four old guys in straw hats singing “Sweet Adeline.” On Monday, July 23, the 35-voice Pacific Coast Harmony (PCH) Chorus takes the stage of the Moonlight Amphitheatre to bring barbershop into the 21st century with a program titled “This is Barbershop.”
Recognized as one of the best a cappella choral groups in Southern California, the La Jolla-based all-male chorus, directed by Kim Hulbert, will present an exciting program of American music classics, including Broadway show tunes, jazz, swing, patriotic music and songs of faith. With a combination of expressive singing and choreographed routines, PCH Chorus emanates a musical magic certain to elicit standing ovations. Adding to the vocal and musical versatility of the program will be several quartets, most noted among them Splash and Ready, Willing & Mabel.
The July 23 concert is the first of four concerts in the Summer Jazz at the Moonlight series. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Call VisTix at (760) 724-2110 for more information.
