Anything Goes Concerts

  • Newport First Presbyterian Church 227 Northeast 12th Street Newport, OR, 97365 United States (map)

Our spring concert always has an "anything goes" theme. We get to sing whatever we want! This year we'll present a bouquet of roses with two of Morten Lauridsen's Rose songs, La Rose Complete and Dirait On, and James Mullholland's setting of Robbie Burns' A Red, Red Rose. We'll stay in the British Isles for another traditional piece, Early One Morning in an arrangement by the King's Singers and we'll sing John Tavener's lovely Song for Athene, familiar to many from its performance at Princess Diana's funeral. We'll add some famous composers with pieces by Stephen Sondheim, Eric Whitacre, Maurice Duruflé , and John Williams. We think this song selection will result in an extravagantly beautiful event. The Chorale is pleased to bring this concert to three locations on the central coast. We'll be in Newport on April 30, in Lincoln City on May 5, and in Yachats on May 6. Please join us!
