Danny Boy comes to Elkader Opera House on St Patrick's Day

The Keystone Chorus will perform Irish songs for St Patrick's Day at the Elkader Opera House March 17, 4:15 p.m., preceding the St Patrick's Day Parade. Entry will be by free-will donation.
Two Quartets from the Keystone Chorus will perform numbers in a Barber Shop style, such as, "Danny Boy."
The community is invited to enjoy the Keystone Chorus perform their wonderful harmonies in Celtic tunes from Ireland. The Keystone Chorus is a chorus of men that sing 4-part a cappella music. The chorus will be followed by the annual St Patrick's Day Celebration Parade. The community can then enjoy dinner at Johnson's Restaurant while listening to organ music. Johnson's will likely be serving the traditional Irish staple food of 'tatties'.
Normally the Keystone Chorus only perform two shows annually, one in the spring and one in late fall, so this is a great opportunity for another chance to see them.
