The curtain is about to rise for the newest of the Community Music Project’s vocal ensembles. The CMP Chorale will present its first concert, “Broadway Delights”, at the newly renovated Southwestern High School auditorium on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 4:00 pm. In an effort to provide “Music for All” in our community, this concert, and all of the CMP concerts this season, will have free admission. A freewill collection will be taken at each concert to give the audience members a chance to show their support of community music project.
Directed by Rebecca Ryan, membership in the chorale is audition free and open to all who love to sing in the Jamestown/Warren area. Currently, there are 80+ members of the chorale, which is comprised of members of the Chautauqua Chamber Singers, the Jamestown Choral Society as well as community members from Ashville, Mayville, Stow, Findley Lake, Randolph, Clymer, Portland, Panama, Dunkirk, Frewsburg, Westfield, Fredonia, Ellington, Chautauqua, Warren Pa, Stockton, Sinclairville, Falconer, Jamestown and Lakewood.
The audience will go away humming familiar tunes from Broadway musical classics such as The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, The Wizard of Oz, Man of La Mancha and Carousel. Songs from the recent award winning musicals Hamilton and Barnum will be stunningly presented, as will melodies from Miss Saigon, Ragtime, Les Miserables and Jekyll and Hyde. Expert piano accompaniment will be provided by Charles Johnson and talented members, too many to name, will be featured soloists.
You can support this exciting new community venture by helping to fill the house. It will be a memorable afternoon.
