MENDON — Mary Pfeifer from Gardener, Illinois, will be preforming her “Simply Patsy” concert at 6:30 p.m. May 25 at the old Mendon School grounds.

This concert is free to everyone. Bring your lawn chair and enjoy the outdoors filled with the country music of Patsy Cline’s greatest hits from 1955-63. Thanks to many local businesses, churches and Alumni Association, this community event is made possible. In case of rain, Pfeifer will perform in the Mendon United Methodist Church.

Mary Pfeifer only recently discovered her “Patsy” voice that was within her. In 2009, she auditioned and got the part of Patsy Cline in the stage play “Always Patsy Cline,” performing all week long to sold-out audiences at the Engle Lane Theatre in Streator, Illinois. The play met with such great success, that it launched a Patsy Cline one-man show for Pfeifer, as well as a full Patsy Cline tribute band Mary Pfeifer and The Pearl Handle Band.

Pfeifer has performed her “Simply Patsy” tribute as the featured performer at The Bement County Opry, Bement, Illinois, at Festival 56 in Princeton, at the Annual Thresherman’s Reunion, and five times at Boot City Opry in Terre Haute, Indiana, as well as county fairs and local festivals.
