2022 Newport Public Library Summer Music Series:
The Coastal-Aires Barbershop Chorus
The 2022 Newport Public Library Summer Music Series will feature The Coastal-Aires Barbershop Chorus on Thursday, August 4th from 6-7:00 pm. The concert will take place behind the Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye Street in Literacy Park.
The Coastal-Aires Barbershop Chorus has been entertaining audiences in Lincoln County for more than 25 years. As a member chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, they have evolved from a male-only chorus to one that welcomes all singers. They sing primarily in the Barbershop style, with its distinctive harmonies, but not all of their songs are a century old.
The Coastal-Aires, directed by Jim Hoover, are a regular feature at the Oregon Coast Aquarium’s Sea of Lights each December, deliver Singing Valentines in February, and sing at numerous other community events throughout the year.
Bring chairs, blankets, and the whole family to enjoy an afternoon of music, community, and fun. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, the concert will relocate indoors to the Newport Public Library’s McEntee Meeting Room.
The 2022 Newport Public Library Music Series is free, open to the public and held on various dates and times throughout the summer beginning in July. This program is proudly sponsored by the Newport Public Library Foundation and City of Newport. For more information, please visit www.newportlibrary.org or call 541-265-2153.
