‘Yuletide Harmonies’ set for Dec. 12

Celebrate the holiday season with a festive afternoon concert. The Red Bank Area Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society will present “Yuletide Harmonies” — a fun concert of vocal harmonies — on Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. at the Ocean Township High School Auditorium, 550 West Park Ave., Oakhurst.

The concert will feature traditional holiday favorites sung in four-part harmony by the Chorus of the Atlantic, a 35-member group of male harmony singers under the direction of Craig Page.

The quartets “Elves of Note” and “Surfboard Santas” will perform in the barbershop style of close harmony singing.

Also appearing on stage will be the “Matinee Idles,” a group of retired men who do afternoon performances, to sing some classics and share some laughter and good cheer, under the direction of John Huetz.

Special guests will be the Ocean Chamber Choir from Ocean Township High School under the direction of Teddy Kernizan.

The audience will have an opportunity to participate with some carol sing-alongs. It is rumored that Santa may make a surprise appearance during the show.

Tickets are $17 for general admission, $14 for seniors and students, free for children age 16 and younger. Tickets are available at the door. Call ahead to buy your tickets and save $2 per ticket. Call 732-784- 7343 and leave your name and phone number.
