KANSAS CITY — Dustin S. Cates, Artistic Director of Heartland Men’s Chorus (HMC), announced recently that its 32nd year will commence for the first time in November by adding a fall performance, From the Heart, at the Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, KS. A goal of Cates since he began in 2014 has been the expansion to a fourth concert to help raise awareness of the chorus with new audiences in southern Johnson County.
Scheduled for Friday, Nov. 10, at 7:30pm, the performance will feature audience favorites from years past. The concert will also feature Kansas City musician Mark Hayes, an internationally known and award-winning composer, arranger, pianist and conductor. He’s composed more music for HMC than any other composer.
In December, HMC will bring a blend of familiar carols and choral classics in Packages With Beaus. At the Folly Theater, Dec. 2-3, Well-Strung, all-male singing string quartet out of New York City, will be joining HMC.
On Dec. 10 at Johnson County Community College’s Yardley Hall, the holiday concert features Broadway sensation, Claybourne Elder.
2018 concerts include ABBA-Cadabra in the spring and Indivisible in June. For information on where to get tickets including season packages, visit www.hmckc.org or call 816-816-931-3338
