a heart" THE Lakeside Harmony Chorus sets fall show Saturday Lakeside Harmony Chorus pre- sents its fall show, "The Prairie Town Companion", Saturday, October 16, in the Appleton '52 Wing Community Center Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. "A Prairie Town Companion" is a Garrison Keiilor-type show featuring Leonard Johnson from New Osio, the little town that time nearly forgot. Narration, storytelling and music are all included in the show. Some of the featured guests are Phyllis Minish and her violin; the Lac qui Parle High School Chorus, direct- ed by Kim Omland; the Hopeful Gospel Choir; and the Grand Symphonic Air Orchestra. There may be other surprises also! Directed by Paul Woolverton, the all-women chorus just finished their 20th anniversary as a group. Because women's chorus groups are rare, Woolverton says it is a great opportu- nity for women to take advantage of. In fact, he said, the group is always looking for more members. "It's a great fun-learning experience. They sings and learn at the same time. You don't have to have experience, just the love of singing." The group depends on dedicated members to keep the women's chorus alive in the area. The Lakeside Harmony Chorus was at one time strongly affiliated with barbershop style music. Today their music styles vary from some barbershop to others with keyboard and other accompaniment. Come and hear about the happenings in New Oslo, and enjoy the music of the Lakeside Harmony Chorus and their guests on Saturday evening, October 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Appleton '52 Wing Auditorium.
