BRAWLEY – The Imperial Valley Master Choral is gearing up for the new year with music to share with the community. Their springÂ concert will feature three diverse musical styles to captivate Â the audience.
The featuredÂ segment will beÂ “The Music of Leonard Bernstein”.Â Â The medley from the entertaining showÂ â€œWonderful Town”Â includesÂ One Hundred Easy Ways,Â SwingÂ andÂ A Quiet Girl.
They will singÂ The Best of All Possible WorldsÂ andÂ Make Our Garden GrowÂ from the satirical showÂ Candide.
Last, but definitely not the least, they will give their all singing the incomparable songs ofÂ West Side Story:Â Â Tonight, I Feel Pretty, Maria,Â AmericaÂ and the heart wrenching closer,Â Somewhere.
There will also be solo and instrumental numbers that Leonard Bernstein has written.
The Broadway musicalÂ “Peter Pan”Â by M. Charlap, featuring Mary Martin will captivate the audience and will offer a fun and light-hearted segment to the program.
Solo and small group numbers includeÂ Captain Hook’s Waltz, I Won’t Grow Up, and I’m Flying.
The third segment isÂ the time honored pieceÂ “Gloria”Â byÂ Antonio Vivaldi.Â Â The work is relatively short, butÂ is dynamic and very enjoyable. Â The music will include soloists and a string quartet.
TheÂ Spring Concert will be on Sunday afternoon, April 13th at 3:00 p.m.
Denny Lang, musical director, hopes that all will join him for this interesting and rewarding musical adventure.
