A barbershop harmony group will have a public concert to commemorate the tragedy of Sept. 11 – a tradition it started 10 years ago.
The ThunderTones Chorus will present a concert “Let Freedom Sing” at 4 p.m. Sept. 9 in the amphitheater of Barboursville Community Park, according to a news release from the group.
The chorus has commemorated the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001, by recognizing and honoring fire, police and EMS personnel and active and retired military with a public concert every year since Sept. 11, 2002.
This year the ThunderTones will be joined on stage by the Ashland Singing Kernels, the Kanawha Kordsmen and the River Magic choruses.
There is no admission charge, and blankets and lawn chairs can be brought into the amphitheater for comfort and convenience.
The ThunderTones chorus is the Barboursville-based Huntington Tri-State Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. It meets and rehearses at the Fellowship Baptist Church on Route 60 East every Thursday at 7 p.m.
For more information about the chorus or the “Let Freedom Sing” concert, call 304-302-NOTE.
