Star to host Evening of Barbershop concert

UPPER SANDUSKY – The Star Theatre in Upper Sandusky is to host its annual An Evening of Barbershop concert at 7 p.m. Aug. 24. Each year, the proceeds benefit the Star Players Scholarship Fund. This year, the barbershop quartets that will sing in the show are Blueshift, Archive and the comedy quartet The Hot Air Buffoons.

Blueshift is made up of four musicians who have in common an interest in singing and performing, making an impact on the stage and, most of all, having fun. Each of the four members began singing in quartets in high school. In the fall of 2012, Blueshift was named a Johnny Appleseed District quartet finalist. Most recently, the quartet placed 12th at the collegiate barbershop quartet contest at the Barbershop Harmony Society’s 75th international convention in Toronto, Ontario.

Tickets cost $15 each and can be reserved by calling the Star Theatre at (419) 294-1411 and leaving a message.
