Music Scene: Week of April 16, 2010

Early birds are welcome, but keep the haggling to a minimum.

The Bookcliff Barbershop Harmony Chorus will present the musical “Yard Sale” at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, April 17, at the Avalon Theatre, 645 Main St.

“Yard Sale” is a bargain of entertainment, complete with competing neighbors and the chorus, anxious to sell you songs from the past. There will be plenty of comedy and a cappella harmony.

The 40-member chorus’ annual fundraising spring show will feature middle school, high school and college students as well as other local talent. Special guests McPhly, the 2008 Rocky Mountain District Quartet Champions, will be there from Denver. The Centennial Band also will perform.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Ages 6 and under are free. Tickets for groups of 10 or more are $10 per person.

Tickets can be purchased at Party Land, 2650 North Ave., and United Country Realty, 2470 Patterson Road, as well as from chorus members and at the door.
