— On June 24, the Wayne County Creative Arts Council is proud to present the Wayne Choralaires on Honesdale's Central park stage at 7:30 p.m.
The concert this year is titled "One Song!" The theme of "One Song" is that if we all sing the same words we can maybe make this planet our home a safer place.
Other songs that will be featured are popular renditions of You Raise Me Up, Over the Rainbow, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, and At Last. The group will also be singing such songs as: When the Saints Go Marching In, Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel, Precious Lord and Take My Hand.
They will also perform old Favorites like There's No Business Like Show Business, Alexander's Ragtime Band and patriotic standards Give Me Your Tired Your Poor and God Bless America. The chorus is directed by Patricia Spoor and piano accompaniment will be provided by Tim Farrand, a Honesdale High School junior.
Several local soloists will be featured and the audience will be invited to join in the singing.
The Choralaires will also be performing outdoors at Dorflinger Sanctuary on Sunday, June 23.
On June 27, WCCAC will host The Pharm.
They are a family group who also perform their blended music style at local fairs and events.
John O'Keefe plays guitar; wife Karen plays bass and daughter Melissa plays mandolin. Bring a chair and get set to enjoy a mixed bag of country, folk music, bluegrass and classic rock.
In case of rain, the concerts will be moved to the Episcopal Parish House across the street. Refreshments can be purchased near the park.
The concert is free, however, a free-will collection will be taken during the performance.
