Easton Choral Arts celebrates its 40th season with their inaugural concert, Made in the USA. Opening with Now Shall My Inward Joys Arise by William Billings, the all American concert will also feature spirituals and Stephen Foster songs, and continue with memorable Broadway tunes from George and Ira Gershwin and Cole Porter. Highlighting the festive concert will be a parade of spectacular pieces from the musicals of Rogers and Hammerstein. The 1940s will be represented by the music of Randall Thompson and Johnny Mercer and, for the final series, the chorus will sing modern compositions from Aaron Copeland and Leonard Bernstein whose 100th birthday will take place later in the season. Under the direction of Artistic Director Wes Lockfaw, the concert will be held at Christ Church Easton on Friday, October 13 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, October 15 at 4:00 p.m.
Advanced sale tickets are $25 or $30 at the door.
Students are admitted free (reservations are required).
