Prairie Echoes Chorus enjoying summer

Published: Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Prairie Echoes Chorus has been having a busy summer.

The group recently welcomed four new members, Heidi Bronoski, Valerie Pittman, Kristin Christian and Nicole Chapen-Adams. They have enjoyed singing songs such as “Hot, Hot Hot,” “Kokomo,” “Lean On Me,” “Break’n Up is Hard to Do” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat.”

In June the group raised money for cancer research through donations for Relay for Life for Kishwaukee Community Hospital in DeKalb. The chorus recently participated in two parades – the Independence Day parade in Kirkland and the Dixon Petunia Festival parade on July 7. 

On July 9, they sang at Lincolnshire Place in Sycamore. Prairie Echoes had a party/reunion at Kris Conley’s farm on July 14 where they engaged in four-part harmony, swimming, food, friendships and fun.

Prairie Echoes Chorus meets from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Tuesdays at St. Paul Episcopal Church, 900 Normal in DeKalb.
