The Chordbuster Barbershop Chorus and its quartets will present their 58th annual Holiday- in-Harmony show in the new Performing Arts Center at Bettendorf High School, Saturday, March 29th at 7:00 PM. The musical show, entitled “Sensational ‘60s”, will revisit many of the top hits from the 1960’s made famous by such groups as “the Beatles”, “the Beach Boys” and others. In addition, a Midwest acappella sensation, “After Hours” quartet, will also be featured on the show. “After Hours” have been three-time collegiate champions in the Illinois District as well as the Illinois District champions in 2010. Last July, they finished in 8th place in the annual Barbershop Harmony Society International competition. Also appearing in the show will be “the Bend of the River Chorus” of Rock Island, quartets from both choruses and an ensemble from Bettendorf High School.

The Performing Arts Center is located at 3333-18th Street in Bettendorf. Ticket prices are $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for students (K-12). Tickets can be obtained from members of either chorus or phone: (563) 340-8743 (day) or (309) 762-3117 (eve). Tickets will also be available at the door.
