The Heart O’Lakes Harmony Men’s Chorus will once again bring its spring show to the stage of Detroit Lakes’ Historic Holmes Theatre this Saturday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m.

This year’s show, “Halo and Good Buy – An Old Time Tent Revival” is a hilarious yet completely respectful parody of an old fashioned tent meeting complete with well-known gospel music that has been popular for years.

Up tempo, toe tapping, knee slapping songs that filled churches and thrilled audiences in the past are presented in tight, high-energy, four part, a capella harmony.

The local 46-member mens’ chorus will have more than three dozen voices in one chorus and in several small groups to bring you such classics as: “When The Saints Go Marching In,” “Feelin’ Fine,” “Turn Your Radio On,” “I’ll Fly Away,” “Mississippi Squirrel Revival,” “Daddy Sang Bass,” “Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven,” “Run To The City Of Refuge” and several others.

The featured act is the famous Peter Benson and his Benson Family Singers – a multitalented family that is well known in the upper Midwest for their inspirational gospel music, their a capella Barbershop musical style and their instrumental talent.


Debbie Kaminski directs the background play about a traveling musical group that presents the Power of Music as a way to work miracles.

The play features slapstick comedy and plenty of laughs that is sure to entertain.

The show will also be presented at the Kennedy Middle School Auditorium in Fergus Falls on Friday, April 11, 2014, at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is $12 for adults free for children under 12. Tickets may be purchased at Victor Lundeen’s in Fergus Falls, and at the Holmes Theatre ticket office in Detroit Lakes. They will also be available at the door.
