The Choral-Aires Chorus performs in a thrilling finale to the Americana Arts Series hosted by Lutheran Home (Arlington Heights, Ill.). This full women's barbershop chorus entertains audiences with lively choreography and powerful sound while singing barbershop classics, show tunes, patriotic numbers, and more. Community members are invited to enjoy this free event Sunday, May 5, 3 p.m., at Lutheran Home (800 West Oakton Street, Arlington Heights, Ill., 60004).

"We couldn't be happier to perform in front of an audience that has a true appreciation for the art form of barbershop music," says Chorus President Nancy Smith. "We are preparing for this special day and look forward to entertaining and engaging with the lovely folks at Lutheran Home!"
