Free community concert features gospel to barbershop

October 24, 2013 

The third annual Men’s Chorus concert will return to the Pavilion at John Knox Village. The music begins flowing at 6 p.m., Nov. 3 at 520 NW Murray Road.

This free community concert will feature everything from gospel singing to barbershop harmony. A good will offering will be collected to benefit the JKV Food Pantry.

Headliners will be the Methodist Men of Note, directed by Larry Keisker, and the New Harmony Handful , directed by Jim Bagby. The Men of Note are based at the First United Methodist Church in Lee’s Summit. The NHH are a mini-chorus from the Kansas City Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Both choruses will combine for a joint finale under the two veteran directors.

Other performers will include “Eight Dudes and a Dudette,” and the big sound of the award winning “Resonation Quartet” plus some surprise acts.

The 24 person men’s choir called, “The Methodist Men of Note” have been harmonizing together for eleven years. Some of the group’s favorite gospel and sacred music will be included in the concert.

The choir director is Larry Keisker. Keith Sandrock is the piano accompanist. Special numbers will feature Chet Roberts on harmonica.

“The Methodist Men of Note” perform at venues throughout Missouri, Arkansas, and Kansas. The choir recently sang at The Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The men’s concerts have raised hundreds of dollars for the Food Pantry.
