From Heartland Men’s Chorus, a Glorious, Globe-Sweeping Ride

March 31, 2007

Capture the high, people! Capture the high! I just had to leave the calamitous din of the Bistro 303 to come rushing home and set my thoughts down to inform you about the sensational spring concert sung by the Heartland Men’s Chorus this evening at the Folly Theater, Kansas City, Mo. […]
