Idle and abandoned for more than two decades before it was saved from demolition in 1971, the Opera House has been rehabilitated and sustained through volunteer effort and the generosity of EOH members and friends. This support has enabled it to become a beacon for the arts in our community.

The Blue Parlsey Boys

The Blue Parlsey Boys

On Sunday, May 3rd at 3 pm come for a matinee with the Blue Parsley Boys singing a cappella in “Fifty Shades of Blue.” The Blue Parsley Boys are one of the area’s premier a cappella ensembles. The Colgate Inn of Hamilton generously sponsors this performance.

Together since 1998, the Blue Parsley Boys are known for singing familiar and humorous a cappella arrangements. “We’ve taken what used to be an entrée of street-corner barbershop and added a pinch of rock, a dash of spirituals, a dollop of doo-wop and garnished our sound with some Blue Parsley,” said Reg Wilson, one of the group’s high tenors. “Whether your taste is a little old fashioned or more contemporary, you’re going to love a vocal style that we have to say is all our own.”

The group works on an ever-changing book of approximately 100 songs. In the past, this has included fan favorites such as Joyce Eilers’ spiritual “Bound for Jubilee,” “In My Room” by the Beach Boys, a satirical rendition of the story of Noah in “Old Man Noah,” the traditional American folk song “Shenandoah,” the Irish ballad “Danny Boy,” and Billy Joel’s iconic “For the Longest Time.”

Joining Wilson in the Blue Parsley Boys are first tenor Neal Roberts; second tenors Bud Ballinger and Ben Eberhardt; baritones Dan de Noyelles, Christian Vischi and Bruce Ward; basses Dave Lantz and Todd Thomsen. Accompanist Laura Pasquith will be playing the 1893 Chickering Baby Grand.

Don’t miss the Blue Parsley Boys in the amazing acoustics of the 1892 Opera House. Tickets are available online or by calling EOH at $12, $10 EOH members, $7 students. Premium seating applies in the first 4 rows with additional charges of $5. The EOH Theater is wheelchair-accessible with a ramp and a lift.

During your visit, take advantage of the exhibits in the three EOH Art Galleries, the Artisan’s Gift Shop featuring New York artists as well as the homemade desserts in the EOH Arts Café! Delicious refreshments will be available before the show and during intermission, including hot and cold drinks. For more information, or to reserve your seats, call 315-691-3550 or order online at www.earlvilleoperahouse.com. The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.

EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.
