For the past seven summers, members of the award-winning Racing City Chorus have entertained al fresco diners and visitors with a series of strolling, impromptu mini-concerts in four part harmony on the sidewalks of downtown Saratoga Springs. Already a summer tradition, “Barbershop on Broadway” is scheduled for Thursday evenings during the thoroughbred racing meet (July 27, August 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.) when the chorus will perform show tunes, patriotic numbers, and popular songs. “Barbershop on Broadway” is underwritten by a several downtown restaurants and shops. Christel and Colin MacLean, co-owners of Circus Café on Broadway and longtime chorus sponsors, believe the sidewalk series not only brings a festive atmosphere to downtown, it provides the kind of quality entertainment which makes the City a destination for visitors. “We have guests who make reservations to coincide with the chorus’s a cappella performances,” Christel MacLean said. “Our guests and staff love it whenever the chorus performs.” The forty-eight member Racing City Chorus is the reigning Mountain Division Champion of the Northeastern District of the Barbershop Harmony Society and regularly appear at festivals, sporting events, and other venues throughout the area.
