The spring concert for the Peninsula Community Chorus will feature a program of American music with songs such as “Shenandoah,” “Deep River,” “The Gift to be Simple” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
The spring concert is set for 3 p.m. Sunday (May 22) at the Fox Island United Church of Christ, 726 Sixth Avenue on Fox Island.
“This spring we wanted to dig deeper into the vocal music that truly highlights the American experience,” director Wayne Lackman said in a release. “Copeland’s folk music evokes images of a much simpler time. Our jazz standards from Broadway are quite sentimental. But the American spirituals are exceptional — their strong chords and powerful rhythms carry the full struggle and passion from that part of our history.”
The concert is free, with donations accepted, and is open to the public. Light refreshment will be served in a reception following the concert.
The Chorus is a nonprofit organization founded to provide open opportunities for Gig Harbor area residents to sing and provide performances for the greater community. PCC has provided opportunities for area residents to sing and performance for more than 60 years.
