Artistic director Wes Lockfaw, accompanist Becky Zinser, singers from the Easton Choral Arts Society (ECAS), instrumentalists including an oboist, a trumpeter, and string players will come together in a virtual concert entitled “A Bridge to Beyond” on May 20 and 23. The concert theme is based on songs of hope to help see us through the pandemic.
Opening with “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” the repertoire includes popular songs, spirituals, gospel, Broadway and classical. Included among the songs in the concert are “Winter’s on the Wing” from The Secret Garden, “What a Wonderful World,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel, and the rousing gospel work, “The Storm is Passing Over.” While the concert format changed during COVID-19, ECAS continues to strive to reach choral music lovers in the region and beyond.
Tickets will be available for $10 beginning in April on the ECAS website eastonchoralarts.org. Easton Choral Arts Society, Inc. is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization funded in part by the Maryland State Arts Council, the Talbot County Arts Council, and the Mid-Shore Community Foundation.
