Two years have passed since the Suncoast Harmony Chorus last performed an annual concert, featuring the voices of women singing four-part harmony.
This year, the 17-member chorus is ready to entertain once again — and they're bringing along some guest performers.
The Magic of Music at 2 p.m. Saturday at First Methodist Church of Hudson is the comeback concert for west-central Florida's chapter of Sweet Adelines International.
While there hasn't been a public performance for a couple of years, the chorus has been honing its sound, said director Anne Prins.
Those with an affection for the barbershop style should like what they hear, she said.
"It's a rather eclectic performance," said Prins, who has been a member of Sweet Adelines since the 1970s and formerly served as director of women's a cappella groups in Ontario, Canada, before taking on the Suncoast Harmony Chorus.
Among the songs on the group's set list — Ain't Misbehavin', What a Wonderful World and a tune made popular by Josh Groban, You Raise Me Up.
Taking the stage in the second half will be Ciao Bella. The Sweet Adelines quartet with the Toast of Tampa Show Chorus won third place in the 2015 regional competition.
Rounding out the program will be the male voices of the Florida Suncoast Chorus from Largo, one of 800 chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Some of their featured selections will include Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella, Love Me Tender and That's Life, along with a combined finale performance with the women of the Suncoast Harmony Chorus.
