San Marcos' own Heart of Texas (H.O.T.) Chorus is having a party and you're invited.
On Thursday, March 7, at 7 p.m. in Room 222, in the Music Building, on the campus of Texas State University, the Chorus will celebrate its19th birthday with performances by the chorus and top-rated quartet Sterling, an audience sing along, refreshments and a H.O.T. birthday cake.
All interested members of the community are invited, with a special invitation for men who like to sing.
The chorus, in competition with groups from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, earned the right to advance to the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Quartet and Chorus Contest next July in Toronto, where they will compete with choruses from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and others, in what has been called the World Series of barbershop harmony singing.
This will be the chorus' ninth trip to the International Contest stage.
The Heart of Texas Chorus, with members from Kerrville to Killeen and points in between, rehearses at Texas State University and has a great partnership with the university and the city of San Marcos, where it performs at numerous civic events and other community and university occasions.
