MADISON – A dramatic contrast in musical styles will please all musical palettes at the Madison Gazebo Concert on June 19.

During summer, Madison Arts Council presents the gazebo concerts in the downtown historic district on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Organized in 2001, Southern Splendor Chorus is all-male chorus that sings four-part, harmony a capella (without instrumental accompaniment). The ‘barbershop’ genre originated in the late 1800s and merges English hymns with African-American influences for a true American art form.

Southern Splendor has performed across the Tennessee Valley in Athens, Ardmore, Madison, Decatur, Cullman, Huntsville and other venues. The chorus annually provides Singing Valentines as their major fundraiser to generate operating funds.

Southern Splendor Chorus rehearses on Thursdays at 7 p.m. at Athens Bible School. Chorus members live across North Alabama from Florence to Madison and Huntsville; two members live in Tennessee.

Their repertoire changes frequently. Audiences can expect classic sounds like “Love’s Old Sweet Song,” “Hello, My Baby” and “Sentimental Gentleman from Georgia.” For more information, visit southernsplendorchorus.com.

Also in concert on June 19, Robbie Eichman bills himself as a ‘solo Indie rock guitarist’ with a signature that is “deeply seeped in British Invasion syrup and sprinkled with 1990s pop-punk.” His debut album is “Wires, Wood, and Words” on the Dirrty Apple Records label.

Eichman describes his music as “a natural tonic for anyone who loves the sunny side of rock ‘n roll.'” He uses loop pedals, guitar, tambourine and harmonica to present a mixture of cover tunes.

A Huntsville native, Eichman was named one of the top three vocalists in the Tennessee Valley. He applies a fresh approach to classic songs while also incorporating catchy originals in his sets.

Eichman draws an influence from The Beatles, Toy Shop, Fountains of Wayne and The Burnt Fork Experience. For more information, visit RobbyEichman.com.

Madison Hospital is sponsoring the June 19 concert. Piper and Leaf Artisan Tea Company and Sady’s Bistro will provide concessions.
