COLUMBIA — Roy Rogers is proud of the diversity of ages among the members of the Boonslick Chordbusters.

"Some people think it's a bunch of old guys, but they're wrong," said Rogers, vice president of pubic relations and marketing for the Chordbusters. The a capella group, which is the Columbia chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, has its Christmas concert on Saturday.

Ages range like the harmonies among the ensemble's 25 members. The youngest, Patrick Lockwood, is a junior at MU and the Chordbusters' program director. The group's oldest member, 91-year-old Fred List, has been a member for several decades.
