Christmas favorites, along with traditional barbershop pieces, will be performed by the student barbershop quartet Studio 237 at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Frank House, located on the University of Nebraska at Kearney West Campus.
“Our quartet formed at the beginning of this semester, in part, to encourage more barbershop harmony singing on campus,” said Robert Roth, a senior music education and composition major from Arcadia. “We named our quartet Studio 237, because we always rehearse in practice room 237 of the Fine Arts Building.”
Members of Studio 237, the parts they sing, their majors and hometowns include: Roth, baritone; Jared Flodman, lead, a freshman music education major from Lincoln; David Morrison, bass, a sophomore music education major from Lincoln; and Andrew Poinsette, tenor, a sophomore wildlife biology major from Bellevue.
“Performing at the Frank House will give us a chance to host our own recital, which we are very excited to do,” Roth said. Roth is also a student worker at the Frank House. Light refreshments and house tours will be available after the performance.
“But more importantly,” he said, “we are looking forward to sharing our music with our audience. Our program will include Christmas favorites as well as traditional barbershop songs.”
While The Studio 237 Barbershop Quartet performance is free and open to the public, KrisAnn Sullivan, Frank House director, noted: “Donations helped refurbish the master bed chamber area and will be put to good use as we begin the other planned improvement projects in the Frank House. Saturday at the Frank House educational program volunteers help make the public aware of the needs of the house and the public responds. Donations are always appreciated in support of the Frank House.”
Upcoming Saturdays at the Frank House include: Dec. 10, “Loper Low Brass,” and Dec. 17, “Happy Holiday Tours.” The Annual Christmas Walk is set for Dec. 1-17. For more information, visit:www.frankhouse.org.
