*THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO MOTHER OF SORROWS CHURCH DUE TO POSSIBLE RAIN*
The annual Put-in-Bay Barbershop Quartet Show is set for 7 pm Aug. 13.
The program will showcase about 20 talented quartets from around Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Each foursome will share two songs. Close to 100 singers will combine for a grand finale. The program is presented to the public free of charge, with sponsorship provided by The Lake Erie Islands Nature and Wildlife Center.
The Put-in-Bay Barbershop Singers have performed at Perry’s Peace Memorial for over 70 years. Guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair. A limited amount of chairs will be available. In case of rain the concert will be moved to nearby Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church.
For more than seven decades hundreds of people have gathered to hear the Barbershop Singers perform a free concert at Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial. Harmony and peace are perfect companions and the concert takes place on the back porch of the National Park’s Visitor Center. Some seating is provided but people are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket to accommodate the large crowds that attend each year. Another event in the Park’s “peace through music” legacy.
