4. Tonic Sol-fa will be bringing almost 20 years of a cappella excellence to the Bridge View Center Saturday evening. The instantly recognizable sound and award-winning music begin at 7:30 p.m. All of Tonic Sol-fa's music is performed with no background music, just a tambourine and a shaker. Their four-part harmony is what makes them unique and exciting. Crowd participation and getting everyone involved in the performance give them the opportunity to connect with the audience in a way many groups can't. For more information, call Bridge View Center at 641-684-7000 or go to www.BridgeViewCenter.com.
5. The concert "Celebrating Youth and Music" will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Iowa Theatre in Bloomfield with Lyle Stirling, music director. The concert will include performances by the high school vocal and instrumental music departments, middle school vocal and instrumental music departments, Indian Hills Community College and the Children's Choir. A freewill offering will be accepted.
