Don’t miss this, folks. Community concert to delight audiences again!
I’ve said it many times before. This is a community event no one should miss. The representation with singers from across this community is impressive. People of all different backgrounds come together to entertain you…and it’s free!
For a little over an hour, you can just sit back and enjoy. Sometimes you’ll laugh, sometimes, you’ll just be in awe of the talent, sometimes you’ll want to clap your hands or even sing along.
This week (Thursday, Friday and Saturday), the East Lincoln Community Chorus will touch your senses with its production, “Once Upon A Time…” a fairy tale about the sun, the moon, and the musical awakening of Mother Earth.” Performances are Thursday and Friday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 4 p.m. at Unity Presbyterian Church.
These folks have given up their “spare” time to do something they all love to do – sing. If you’ve never been, why not make it your goal to attend this year. If you’ve been in the past, you know you don’t want to miss this event.
The information about the concert says it best. “Buckle up! This show promises to be an emotional journey you don’t want to miss. Experience the weaving of an organic tapestry of fantasy, fairy tales, and make believe with new beginnings, music old and new, and life in wonderful memories and imagination.”
Concerts are free, but feel free to bring your check to one of the performances. Donations are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated. Believe me, productions such as this take money to put together.
“Please accept our thanks as we thrive due to your generosity and continue to bring the gift of musical arts to our neighborhood free of charge for all,” said one of the singers.
I’ve been going to these concerts since they began. They are generally put on in the summer and again near Christmastime. From show tunes to shows that revolve around a Christmas story, I’ve never been disappointed. And while I love the singers, actors, and other musicians, I love, love, love the piano playing of Jeff Perks who accompanies the chorus.
We whole heartedly support this group and urge you all to go. And don’t be turned away if the parking lot seems full. It is well-worth the effort to go. Just don’t wait until the last minute to get there or you might miss out.
See you at the chorus concert!
