Hill Country Blenders putting on spring show

Oscar Hammerstein II said it first: “The hills are alive with the sound of music.” But here’s the local version: The Hill Country Sings. That’s the theme of the Hill Country Blenders annual Spring Show on April 25-26 at First Baptist Church, 501 12th St. in Marble Falls. Performances are 7 p.m. both nights. The Blenders, directed by Peter Cunningham, will sing in the typical four-part “barbershop” a capella style. This year, the annual show honors the 75th anniversary of the Barbershop Harmony Society, the Blenders’ parent international organization, and will feature a variety of traditional 1890s-style barbershop four-part harmony as well as barbershop arrangements of more modern sacred, patriotic, and popular music. In addition to showcasing the Blenders’ senior quartet, Premium Blend, the show also will feature the ladies of the Bluebonnet Chorale, directed by Mary Williams, and the Highland Lakes Men’s Chorus, directed by Larry Sherwood. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in advance at Bernie’s Mustang Lube, 1604 RR 1431 across from McDonald’s in Marble Falls; at the door; or from any member of the Blenders. Courtesy photo
