An all-male a-capella group will be making a stop in Kalona later this month to perform, and one of the singers gets to show off his talents to his community.  Michael Swartzendruber is a student at Eastern Mennonite University in Virginia.  A native of Kalona, he is one of the singers with the group, “Bellaccord,” who is currently on a four-state tour.  The group will present a lineup of love songs, religious selections, and songs of peace in Iowa City on June 26th, and then at Crooked Creek Christian Camp near Washington the next night.   The appearances precede the singers’ trip to the biennial Mennonite Church USA conference in Pittsburgh next month.
