A Night of Harmony in Quarryville

Posted on June 9, 2012 · Posted in News

The sound of harmony rang through the air in Quarryville tonight as the Lancaster Red Rose Chorus performed in Huffnagle Park.

The stage was awash in sunshine as the chorus and director, Lori Jo Whitehaus, took the stage to sing before a large and attentive audience. Opening with It’s a Brand New Day, emcees Rick Ashby and Bud Hart guided the audience through a repertoire that included In The Still of the Night and Dream a Little Dream as well as perennial crowd favorites Hello Mary Lou and When I’m 64.

After a brief intermission following Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight, a pick-up quartet – a SPEBSQSA tradition – named Hart’s Heroes (just for the evening!) took the stage to entertain the audience with four numbers. The chorus then returned to the stage to sing its contest set – On the Street Where You Live and Good Enough for Now – and their popular religious set. They closed the concert with the patriotic songs, America the beautiful and God Bless America, which got the audience to its feet in appreciation.

The Red Rose Chorus has a busy schedule for the rest of the year including their annual Cabaret and a Christmas show in Lancaster’s Ware Center. See you there!
