HAGERSTOWN - Eight-year-old Blake Hepner said he couldn't explain why he enjoyed a performance by The Mason Dixon Barbershop Chorus before a packed house Saturday night inside the Kepler Theatre at Hagerstown Community College.
"It was just cool," he said.
Blake attended the concert with his mother, Kathy, who said she decided to get tickets after discovering earlier in the day that the chorus would sing.
"I just haven't heard a barbershop (chorus) in a long time," Kathy said. "I just like them."
About 25 members of the chorus took the stage to put on a production of "Grandpa's Attic," a musical about an elderly man, played by local actor Dick Hershey, who invites men to his home to move furniture. Nothing gets done, however, because they end up singing instead.
"I loved the sound of the music," Hagerstown resident Margaret Groff said during a brief intermission. "The old songs are wonderful."
