The Warwick Valley Chorale has announced its May 2015 concert series, “From Country Roads to Broadway,” with three upcoming area concerts. As always, admission is free, although donations will be welcome. These concerts will mark the group’s 74th consecutive year of choral performances.
The concerts will open with “Frostiana,” a series of Robert Frost’s best-known poems set to lush pastoral music by Randall Thompson. “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” “Choose Something Like a Star,” and five other Frost selections will showcase the New England wit and insight of Frost’s iconic poems.
After intermission, the Broadway medleys will include Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, and selections from many other classics from shows such as Carousel, Mame, Hello, Dolly! and Annie.
The group, directed by Stanley Curtis, includes volunteer singers from the entire region and is accompanied by Gail Johnson. For further information, visit the Chorale’s website at www.WarwickValleyChorale.org. New members are always welcome.
