San Angelo Singing Boys, Girls Join ASU Chamber Singers for Spring Concert
The Angelo State University Chamber Singers will be joined by the San Angelo Singing Boys and Girls when they present their Spring Concert on Tuesday, April 10, in the University Auditorium on the ASU campus.
The concert will offer a wide variety of musical styles and will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday. The concert is open to the public. Admission is free.
The talented young members of the San Angelo Singing Boys and Girls are under the direction of Marco Melendez and Beth Horner, respectively. The ASU Chamber Singers are directed by Dr. Pamela Lee, associate professor of music and director of choral activities at ASU.
Selections by the Chamber Singers will include three Zigeunerlieder pieces; "Op. 112" by Johannes Brahms; and three madrigals by Colorado composer Jean Berger. Other tunes will include three of the King's Singers most popular hits "You Are The New Day," "Blackbird" and "I'm A Train" as well as a medley of Irving Berlin's most enduring Broadway songs "Easter Parade," "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody," "Anything You Can Do," "Heat Wave" and "Puttin' on the Ritz." The Berlin medley will feature a duet by music education majors Sunday Wilson and Shaun Yates.
The San Angelo Singing Boys and Girls will be performing music from their upcoming Austin tour. In Austin, they will be singing for the grand opening of the Bob Bullock Museum of Texas History and in the Rotunda of the Texas State Capitol. Both choirs are part of the First Presbyterian Church Fine Arts School. Accompanists are Shirlene Klein for the Singing Boys and Sariah McCracken for the Singing Girls.
The concert will conclude when all three choirs combine for Moses Hogan's arrangement of "Old Time Religion."
Before and after the concert, interested parents will have the opportunity to sign their children up for Singing Boys and Girls auditions in May.
