Men’s Chorus performances to benefit Therapeutic Riding Center

Mar 19, 2015

The first performance of the Heart of America Men’s Chorus 2015 season is set for March 28-29 at Newman University.

The concert is a combination of boots and air guitars as the Heart of America men present “Cowboys and Rockstars,” a wide-ranging selection of country and rock music favorites.

Show times for Cowboys and Rockstars are 7 p.m. Saturday, March 28 and 4:30 p.m. Sunday, March 29, both in Performance Hall, inside the De Mattias Fine Arts Center.

Proceeds from the two shows will go to the Prairie Meadows Therapeutic Riding Center in Goddard. The center is a non-profit Christian organization founded in 1989 by Jim Webb, a horse riding instructor, and his daughters, Kristin Wertz and Tori Turney, both occupational therapists.

According to the organization’s website, Prairie Meadows exists to enhance the lives of children by bringing horses and special needs kids “together for special therapy to maximize functional outcomes.”

The Heart of America Men’s Chorus is a men’s chorus located in Wichita. It started in 2002 with five men who had a goal to perform for the joy of singing and to support charitable causes in Wichita. There are now more than 30 men in the group with hundreds of fans that purchase tickets to their events.
