Twenty four of the 60 members of the Prairie Fire Lady Choir packed into the WideSpot Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Oct. 13. The concert featured a variety of songs, such as "Settle Down," by New Zealand pop-singer Kimbra, "We Belong," made popular by Pat Benatar, a Leonard Cohen mashup and a piece written by one of the original members of the choir. For a couple of songs the choir used a tamborine, egg shaker, melodica and three-ring binder — used as a drum — to add to the 24 voices. When the concert came to an end, the choir received a standing-ovation and performed an encore after chants of "one more" rippled through the room.
