It’s finally spring in South Dundas, and that means people can look forward to one of the special joys of the season: a new concert by the Seaway Singers.
The Seaway Singers, 33 members strong, will be presenting a performance entitled ‘Gavottes to Gershwin,’ at the Williamsburg Christian Reformed Church on Friday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m.
Under the able direction of conductor Robert Jones, with Margaret Whisselle as accompanist, the Singers will present a wide variety of music. The audience can look forward to hearing beautiful seasonal pieces (“Hail the Welcome Signs of Spring”) as well as a medley of the upbeat, infectious songs of George Gershwin from his Broadway hit, Crazy for You.
Conductor Jones has designed a program which will appeal to all musical tastes.
Choral arrangements of two gavottes by Bach, a Welsh Air and a selection of Five Nursery Rhymes will be part of the concert. So too will John Denver’s beautiful “Annie’s Song.’
The Seaway Singers tend to be a very versatile musical group.As well as their very evident vocal talents, two choir members, Daniel Edwards and Randy Lacey, usually found in the bass section, will perform on the violin and guitar during the concert.
The Seaway Singers present two concerts a year, one near Christmas and another to welcome the spring.
Friday, May 11, 7:30 p.m., is a chance to see and hear why the Singers are highly regarded by audiences throughout the area.
Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased in advance at Seaway Pharmacies or at the door of the Williamsburg Christian Reformed Church Friday evening.
