The Prairie Singers will celebrate the past 25 years of performing when the group returns to the Reddick Mansion in Ottawa for performances on April 5 and 6.

The Prairie Singers will perform their 2013 Spring program, “The Best of 25” at the Reddick Mansion, for two nights: Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6. Both performances will be at 7 p.m.

For this year’s spring concert, The Prairie Singers have chosen their favorite songs from the past 25 years of performing. The music will include patriotic, pop, spiritual, sacred, comic, and Broadway themes.

They will perform “For the Beauty of the Earth,” “Let Freedom Ring,” and “Concerto for Singing Chickens.” Other songs will also include “De Gospel Train,” “Unchained Melody,” and “God Bless America.”

A chamber ensemble group, The Prairie Sing-ers include performers from Grundy, La Salle, Livingston, and Kendall counties. In addition to their Spring concert, the group has performed an annual Christmas concert for 25 years.

After the concert in the lovely West Parlors of the Mansion, coffee, punch, and dessert will be served on the lower level. Tickets are $12 for the concert and refreshments.

Because of the popularity of this event, reservations are required. Payment options include cash, check, and credit card. Seating is limited to 40 people per evening.
