September 29, 2010 by Randy Keck

Special to The Community News: Award-winning men's chorus The Vocal Majority will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Jerry Durant Auditorium at Weatherford High School.

The Doss Heritage and Culture Center will host the eleven-time gold medal winning men’s chorus, The Vocal Majority, on Oct. 23.

Begun in 1972, The Vocal Majority is an all-volunteer, 100+ voice male a cappella chorus known for its mastery of technically demanding close harmony. Its repertoire encompasses music from the classics to jazz, patriotic to sacred, rounded out with standards and Broadway pops. It has sung throughout the United States,Canada, Great Britain and Scotland. It sang with the Atlanta Symphony before 135,000 people in Atlanta’s Olympic Centennial Park and has had its own holiday special televised on CBS.

“We are so pleased to again bring a musical group of this caliber to Weatherford,” said James May, president of the Doss Board of Directors. “Seeing them here in our own backyard makes them accessible to our community.”

“It’s a great opportunity for Sunday school classes, families and friends to get together to enjoy the music,” said Betsy Pedigo, Operations Manager at the Doss. New Doss Heritage and Culture Center members receive one free ticket with their membership and members will have a special section at the concert.
