Barbershop Bonanza features Island Chordsmen, Sound Vibrations, Friendly Advice, Lopez Sound, Pacific Sound Chorus
San Juan Community Theatre’s Whittier stage fills with sweet harmonies during the popular Barbershop Bonanza on Sunday, 2 p.m.
San Juan’s own Island Chordsmen Plus and the women’s a cappella group Sound Vibrations again host this annual toe-tapping, finger-snapping extravaganza.
Plus, the rest of 2007’s winning lineup returns: Friendly Advice, the 2006 International Championship Seniors Quartet, (just back from a third tour of Finland, with a side trip to Germany); Lopez Sound, an eight-voice a cappella group that also adds a little be-bop and jazz to its barbershop offerings; and more than 60 members of the 100-voice Pacific Sound Chorus, who are heading to an international choral festival in Hawaii this fall.
Director Angel Michaels promises opportunities for the audience to sing along. There will be a traditional “afterglow” following the show, with refreshments available for purchase in the lobby.
