The sweet sound of a cappella in concert

The Emerald City Chorus, a Wichita chapter of the Sweet Adelines International, will host Emerald City Live! on Saturday. The show will feature award-winning women's quartet Baltimore.

"The audience can expect a couple hours of the most wonderful a cappella music in town," said show production and public relations manager Rachel Klein.

The 2010 Sweet Adelines International Championship Quartet Maxx Factor will have its first Midwest appearance at the show, the Emerald City Chorus' 5th annual performance.

Maxx Factor also competed on the NBC show "The Sing-Off" and faced some challenges during the competition.

"They had to change their style for the younger crowd," Klein said. Maxx Factor finished in the top five.
