Camden’s Windjammer Barbershop Chorus is busily working on its annual show music, which this year has a Western theme. First, the chorus will make a Washington Days appearance Saturday, July 24, singing at 4 p.m. at the Washington fire station prior to the fire department’s public supper.

The chorus’ annual show will be held Saturday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House, 6 Centrals St. The Windjammers will be performing such songs as “Tumbleweeds,” “16 Tons,” “Country Road,” “Oh Bury Me Out” and others.

The chorus invites attendees to the show to join in the fun and wear a Western outfit. The best outfit will be decided upon during intermission and that person will win a prize. The show’s featured quartets will be the chorus’ own Starboard Watch; Back Bay Four, a favorite quartet of show attendees; and a wonderful (female) Sweet Adeline quartet Mainely Acapella. The chorus is directed by Kathy Chamberlain of Randolph and assistant director Granville Ames of Washington.

For advanced tickets or more information, call Nick Greenwood at 236-2159. There will be an Afterglow following the concert, downstairs in the opera house. In barbershop terms, this is a cast party of sorts with food, much more music by all participating groups and lots of laughs.

The chorus is always looking for new members. The Windjammers meet Mondays at 7 p.m. at the Lion’s Den on Lion’s Lane in Camden; call Greenwood for more information.
