Chautauqua concert crowded

(Continued)

Nevins’ memorable performance led into a trio of well-received songs performed by Klose, a young musician who has appeared in productions of Jesus Christ Superstar and Tommy. Klose performed a song called “Four-Leaf Clover” that invited the audience to hum along.

Klose closed his performance by saying, “Thank you to all my new friends in Greensburg.”

O’Neal, a former member of the Bus Boys, played a raucous piano set that included his group’s biggest hit, “The Boys are Back in Town,” to end the show. O’Neal was more than kind in his description of the Tree City, and he exhibited a great deal of exuberance in being part of the musical Chautauqua program.

“This is one of the coolest experiences of my concert life,” O’Neal told the crowd, describing the people of Greensburg as generous and kind.

O’Neal’s set drew loud cheers and he promised to make himself available should future opportunities to come to Greensburg arise.

“I will be here anytime you call,” O’Neal said. “Just let me know where I’m supposed to be and I’ll show up.” He then blew kisses to the crowd.

After the show had ended, the many who had shown up for the unique concert waited in lines to meet O’Neal, Klose and several other Chautauqua participants.

The program served as the lead-in for the school’s Decatur County history presentations at various locations throughout Greensburg Wednesday.
