Pages of Harmony offers musical mystery

The Spokane-based a cappella group Pages of Harmony is presenting the musical mystery “Murder in E-Flat” on Saturday. Yet the audience should arrive expecting to laugh out loud.

“It’s like a vaudeville thing – it starts off with the director getting shot,” said Michael Mattoon, vice president of Pages of Harmony.

The rest of the 90-minute show features a lady trying to evade questions, and other funny characters, but Mattoon doesn’t want to give away the entire story.

Pages of Harmony has entertained Spokane residents for 61 years.

The group has 65 members and competes on a national level with other a cappella groups.

“We will have four award-winning quartets there, as well as the Spirit of Spokane Chorus,” Mattoon said. “The chorus is also part of Pages of Harmony.”

Pages of Harmony has traditionally put on a fall concert and it often falls on or near Veterans Day.

Last year, concert proceeds were donated to Honor Flight, which sends World War II veterans to Washington, D.C.

This year, disabled veterans can call and get free tickets for the show.

“We’d like to do that for them,” Mattoon said. “It will be a fun evening.”
