Barbershop quartet from 'The Music Man' performs song reminding people to wash their hands

The Chanhassen Dinner Theatres production of “The Music Man” is currently on hold to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the show’s barbershop quartet is still singing. 

The barbershop quartet performed the famous song from the show “Lida Rose”, but they changed the lyrics so it is now “Wash Your Hands.” The song is a reminder of the ways people can prevent themselves and others from getting sick during the pandemic. 

The song is performed by actors John-Michael Zuerlein, Evan Tyler Wilson, Aleks Knezevich and Shad Olsen. 

The Chanhassen Dinner Theatres has suspended all performances of “The Music Man” and its other shows until at least May 3 to comply with Gov. Tim Walz’s executive orders

Enjoy! And, don’t forget to wash your hands. 

The CDC and MDH recommend Minnesotans do the following to protect themselves and others and limit the spread of COVID-19: 

  • Stay home and away from others if you are sick
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue
  • Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds with soap and water
  • Avoid touching your face throughout the day
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. The CDC recommends staying a minimum of 6 feet away.
