No, it’s all real – an exciting collection of songs featuring imaginative tempos and a variety of themes prepared by the Sun Lakes Chorale for their Spring Concert audience. Director Cris Evans and husband Bart, who is the Chorale’s Performance Coordinator, have once again planned a musical evening that will generate appeal for those who enjoy a combination of the familiar and the innovative. Many of the song titles may sound familiar, but the performances will be far from ordinary.
Join the Chorale on Friday evening (yes, that’s right, Friday), March 18, at the Sun Lakes United Methodist Church, 9248 E. Riggs Road, in Sun Lakes. Concert time is 7:00 p.m. and veteran concert-goers will start arriving when the doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 each and went on sale in early February. They may be purchased this month at the Sun Lakes Ace Hardware Store’s Ticket Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m.-noon through March 15; by contacting Carolyn Ellis at 480-883-6997 who will accept checks and a stamped, self-addressed return envelope; or from a Chorale member.
The evening’s program ranges from the nostalgic — an excerpt from the sound track of the movie Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the ballad Fly Me To The Moon to the rollicking spiritual I Got a Key (we dare you to sit still during this one!) and the familiar Route 66 which showcase the Chorale’s skills with syncopation and contemporary styling. In contrast, Hymn for Our Time, And There is Music, along with Mack Wilberg’s arrangement of Thou Gracious God, Whose Mercy Lends, highlight the group’s ability to create images and harmonic portraits likely to remain in one’s memory. Enjoy these selections and much more when you join the concert crowd for an unforgettable evening of music.
