The program for this concert features a wide variety of musical selections, so there’s sure to be something everyone will enjoy. From to the upbeat Renaissance madrigal “Sing We and Chant It” by Thomas Morely, to Morton Lauridsen’s wondrous “Sure on this Shining Night,” to the energetic and charming “The Tortoise and the Hare” by Darmon Meader, the Long Beach Chorale will take the audience on a fun and eclectic journey through song. The program also features gospel selections and pop numbers to keep the audience entertained and in high spirits.
“This is my third concert directing the Long Beach Chorale, and I am thrilled every time I get the chance to lead this talented group,” said Bob Gunn, Long Beach Chorale accompanist and guest conductor. “Our program takes our previous performance of Haydn’s The Creation as a jumping-off point, with musical selections that reference the stars, earth, rivers, sky, and all living things. This concert will leave the audience feeling a sense of wonder and joy.”
Audience members are invited to join the Long Beach Chorale for a reception after the performance. Refreshments and desserts will be available and guests can bid on raffle prizes.
The Long Beach Chorale’s singers represent a cross-section of the city, including a wide range of ages, professions and backgrounds. The group performs great music in settings that deliver an unequaled musical experience for the audience. It is the chorale’s mission to foster a stronger and more peaceful community through musical experiences.
