By on January 14, 2015

The Red Rose City Women’s Chorus and men’s barbershop quartet Old Dogs, New Tricks will be the featured artists in the next concert offered by the St. Peter’s Musical Arts Concert Series at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 10 Delp Road, Lancaster. The event is slated for Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. and the public is invited to attend. No tickets are needed, as interested concertgoers are invited to contribute during a free-will offering at intermission.

The 36-voice women’s ensemble specializes in a cappella harmonizations of standards, featuring “Over the Rainbow,” “When the Red, Red Robin comes Bob, Bob Bobbin’ Along,” and “Let’s Get Away from It All” as well as unique takes on newer songs like “It’s Raining Men.” Director Lori Jo Whitehaus has been directing the group since 1994 and coincidentally also leads the local men’s group, the Red Rose Chorus.

Old Dogs, New Trick is a male quartet who hail from the Lancaster and York areas. After five decades of singing, Tom Felgen, Jim Herrick, Paul Stober and John Zimmerman have polished their blended sound on numerous standards, such as “Just One of Those Things,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “Walkin’ My Baby Back Home” and “Blue Velvet.”

The Red Rose City Chorus is the Lancaster chapter of Sweet Adelines, an international singing organization that encompasses over 33,000 women. The choruses are located in the US and 14 nations throughout the globe. The Red Rose City Chorus meets weekly in Lititz and offers numerous programs for civic and charitable organizations.
