[Sarasota, FL: November 25, 2014] Studies show that during the stressful holiday season Americans seek experiences that offer cozy comfort and nostalgia. Four men singing tight harmonies in the quintessential American style of Barbershop quartets is high up on the feel-good meter of any season. That is what makes Holiday Harmonies, an afternoon showcase of three of our region’s winningest barbershop singers—The Best of Times, The Key Tones, and the Afternoon Delight quartets, a choice event 3:00pm, Sunday, December 7, 2014 at the Glenridge Performing Arts Center (7333 Scotland Way, Sarasota). Tickets for this concert ($15 general admission) are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.GPACTix.com, or by calling the GPAC Box Office at 941-552-5325.
Whether it’s a chorus or a quartet, the ringing sounds of those locked-in chords characteristic of men’s barbershop singing has earned the right to be that quintessential image by being evocative, thrilling and exhilarating. The entertainment mix of musical selections will include a jolly portion of your favorite holiday songs and carols. Join us in the lobby for a FREE HOLIDAY DESSERT RECEPTION after the show!
