Enjoying a meal of beef brisket and a side of "all the fixings" while listening to the Carnegie Cowboys sing songs like "Wagon Wheel" and "Wandering Star" is what people can expect for the Jamestown Choralaires annual spring dinner concert fundraiser.

Pam Burkhardt, Jamestown Choralaires director, said she chose to call the Choralaires the "Carnegie Cowboys" and adopt a Western theme to this year's spring dinner concert because she liked the alliteration.

"The guys just performed at Carnegie Hall, so I thought it fit in with our theme," she said.

In addition to singing classic Western songs, Burkhardt said the Choralaires will also sing contemporary country music.

The meal includes three courses and the Choralaires will serve each course, then perform a set.

"We sing a table grace, then the guys will come out and serve the salad," Burkhardt said.

In addition to the sets sung between serving each chorus, special numbers will be performed.

Burkhardt said the spring dinner concert will be a more relaxed and fun atmosphere, different than the more serious tone from the Choralaires last concert in Jamestown.

"Our last concert (in Jamestown) we performed 'Testament of Freedom,'" she said. "We'll have the hall decorated in our Western theme (this time), it's going to be a lot of fun."

Burkhardt said Snack Attack, a catering service run by Dennis Caspet and Linda Pesek, will be providing the food for the meal. She said there is room for 200 each night of the dinner and the Choralaires are asking people to get their tickets by Monday or Tuesday so they can provide a solid number to the caterers on how many people to expect. Burkhardt said the dinner concerts have sold out in the past.
