Prepping for Homestead 2013 performance

The Bureau County Chorus pauses for a photo during a recent rehearsal as they prepare music to be presented during the Friday evening 2013 Homestead Festival activities, which will begin with a concert at 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Soldiers and Sailors Park in Princeton. Disney Spectacular arranged by Mac Huff, a medley of popular Disney songs from many well-loved Disney movies will be sung. The chorus is directed by Gwen Holmes, who has been serving as interim director. The accompanist is Kathy Allen. The public is invited to the concert and to stay for the evening’s activities. Lawn chairs are recommended. Plan to enjoy the evening and as the Homestead 2013 theme reminds: “It’s Good to Be Home.”
