The Detour Quartet will perform at 6:45 p.m. April 29 at Salem United Methodist Church, 115 Old Main, Newton, during a Mother/Daughter covered dish dinner.

Detour members Rachel Newell, LaDonna Cheatham, Linda Schroeder, and Kristi Lovett perform four-part a cappella music. Brought together by their love of singing close harmony, the members of Detour Quartet have been singing with the larger ensemble, Sound of the Heartland, for several years.

Kristi Lovett, tenor, lives in Herington and LaDonna Cheatham, baritone, is from McPherson. LaDonna directs the Sound of the Heartland ensemble. Rachel Newell, lead, now lives in Hesston and Linda Schroeder, bass, is a long-time Newton resident, and they both have been involved in various singing groups over the years.

All four members have a blend to their voices and enjoy bringing lush harmonies to audiences across the region. Sound of the Heartland is a member-chorus and Detour is a registered quartet with Sweet Adelines International.

All ladies of the community are invited to join for a covered dish meal at 6 and the Quartet will follow the meal.  

Bring your daughter, mother, grandmother, aunt, niece, friend, or come and make new friends.
