A Heartland Men’s Chorus performance is not to be missed, period. The talent, passion and theatrics of this beloved KC choral group are divine, thanks in large part to artistic director Nadeau, who has led the men since 1998. Watching Nadeau conduct the chorus—whether it’s a romantic, campy or Broadway number—is akin to soaking in a ballet dancer’s well-rehearsed leaps and turns. He consistently takes us on a delightful roller coaster that quite often sounds like a male choir in a musical heaven.
