This year’s concert includes a medley of numbers from “South Pacific,” several spiritual selections and patriotic pieces, along with several songs composed by local musicians.

The four-part harmony, 50-member “senior singers” are directed by George Ott and accompanied by Carole Loar on the piano, Gary Stein on percussion and Craig Zimmermann on guitar.

The program will also feature the Never Too Late Dancers, soloist Marshall Caton and violinist Wesley Mason, along with the barbershop quartet, Twang!.

The September Singers has been making musical contributions to the community for the past 43 years. This year’s concert is being dedicated in memory of the group’s co-president Lee Loar, who died last month.

Refreshments will be served following the program.

Tickets may be purchased in advance from any member of the September Singers or at the door.
