Suncoast Harmony Chorus performs Feb. 26 in New Port Richey

They've done Broadway tunes and country sounds and have offered up a perfectly pitched patriotic theme. Now in their 26th year, members of the Suncoast Harmony Chorus plan to add some songs with a '50s beat and some Irish charm for this year's annual concert, "Let's Rock — Barbershop Style." The show, which will also feature the touring Ditchfield Family Singers, is 3 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Center for the Arts at River Ridge, 11646 Town Center Road, New Port Richey.

About 23 members of the Suncoast Harmony Chorus will sing hits like Rockin' Robin, Love Me Tender and It's a Great Day to be Irish for this year's performance, said Amy Riddle, who leads the group along with assistant director and choral member Cindy LaPorte. Tickets are $14. To purchase in advance, call (352) 597-4376 or (727) 857-4525.

The chorus also serves as a local chapter of Sweet Adelines International and is scheduled to compete in April along with about 1,000 other singers from Florida and South Carolina at the "Singing in the Sand" Region 9 Sweet Adelines Competition in Daytona Beach.

  1. Jones: Alex Cobb proves again why he's Rays' stopper, no matter how long he's here

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  3. GOP senators blink on a big chance to repeal 'Obamacare'


    WASHINGTON — After seven years of emphatic campaign promises, Senate Republicans demonstrated Wednesday they don't have the stomach to repeal "Obamacare" when it really counts, as the Senate voted 55-45 to reject legislation undoing major portions of Barack Obama's law without replacing it.
