HOMOSASSA -- Local church choirs will perform Saturday at the Singing in the Springs gospel music show at Nature's Resort Campground and Marina, 10359 W Halls River Road.

The gospel concert begins with local church choirs at 10 a.m., followed by individual gospel performances.

In the evening, a gospel music concert featuring The Mast Brothers and The Noblemen will close the program in a 7 p.m. concert.

The event takes place at a bandstand behind the Nature's Resort clubhouse. The tree-lined area also affords a nice view of Halls River. There are some picnic tables and chairs, but it's probably a good idea to bring your own lawn chairs. Nature's Resort will be selling hamburgers, hot dogs and sodas.

Other special entertainment includes a clown show at noon, followed by a puppet show by David & Rusty.

The gospel show is produced by the Homosassa Springs Chamber of Commerce. Advance tickets at the chamber are $4 for the first portion of the show, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., $6 for the evening concert by The Mast Brothers and The Noblemen, and a family pass allowing all-day admission for $12.50. On Saturday, tickets at the clubhouse are $5, $7.50, $8.50 and $15, respectively. Call the chamber at 628-2666 or Nature's Resort clubhouse at 628-7554.

Other musical concerts include:

SPRING MUSICAL: Broadway musicals old, new and somewhere in between will highlight the annual spring concert of the Sugarmill Chorale at 7:30 p.m. today 6 at First United Methodist Church of Homosassa, 8831 W Bradshaw St. The 55-voice chorale, now in its 21st year is under the direction of Christopher Berke with Martin Bachthaler as accompanist. Proceeds from the concerts go toward a $1,000 music scholarship for a Citrus County student who is studying for a career in some aspect of vocal music, either performing or teaching. Last year's winner, Kacie Ann Whaley of Citrus Springs, is currently a student at Palm Beach Atlantic College, majoring in music education.
