This year's show, "I Have a Song to Sing-50 Years of Harmony," features some of the group's favorite songs from the past 50 years including "Can't Help Falling in Love with You," "Dream," and "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat." A special feature of the show will be the performance of "Pittsburgh Town," words and music by the late composer Thomas (Tommy Earl) Frobe.
Originally formed as the Westminster Community Singers in 1966, the name was changed to the Bob Locklin Singers in 1967. In 1969, the first Don Brockett Musical Comedy Show was produced. The name was changed to the Harmony Singers in 1976 and since that time the spring show has become an annual event.
Cynthia G. Pratt is the choral director; Carol Karl is the accompanist.
