Get in the spirit before the holiday arrives. There will be latkes…and entertainment…and laughs…and friends.

If you love the sound of an all-male acapella chorus, then you’ll want to be here for the live performance by the Southern Gateway Chorus! These men perform popular barbershop style shows throughout the community and have been a highly competitive chorus for over 60 years.

Harmony comes to life in their fun and animated performance. Don’t miss this next opportunity to engage with others in your WiseGen community.
