Kathleen Mellen’s Best Bests


Tony Lechner has serious chutzpah: A couple of times a year, he gathers a bunch of mostly untrained singers (100 in this case), gets together with them for weekly rehearsals, heaps upon them piles of sheet music (which many can’t read), rents a hall (Wesley United Methodist Church in Hadley this time around), and proceeds to knock the socks off audiences with tributes to iconic musical groups (Queen this year; last summer it was the Beatles). Lechner’s Valley Rock Choir will perform Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 4. $15; $12 for seniors, students, at the door. valleychoirs.com


FallsFest Music & Arts, Saturday, noon to 10 p.m. offers 10 hours of free music at the South Hadley Beachgrounds, 116 Main St., as well as food, beverages and artisan wares for purchase. shfallsfest.com
