Kaleidoscope of Sound – Spring Concert by Valley Symphony Chorus

Mar 5th @ 7:06 am in News by Scott Staley

Valley Symphony Chorus

Valley Symphony Association is pleased to announce the spring concert showcasing the talents of the Valley Symphony Chorus under the direction of Lenore Hample. Entitled Kaleidoscope of Sounds, this concert will feature a wide range of choral music that will have something to please every listener.

A venue change was required for this spring concert to the Montrose United Methodist Church for both concerts because the highlight will be a performance of Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem. This piece features not only the chorus, but also strings, trumpets, tympani and magnificent pipe organ accompaniment that is possible at the historic at the Montrose United Methodist Church. Valley Symphony Chorus member, Jeannie Hougnon, will be featured playing the pipe organ.

But what is a kaleidoscope without a complex and colorful shift in the scene!  Another portion of the concert will include a choral rendition of Jabberwocky which is a nonsensical poem written by Lewis Carroll in his 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.  A collection of favorite old time songs (complete with audience sing along) such as In the Good Old Summertime, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, You’re a Grand Old Flag and Give My Regards to Broadway, will round out the concert.

Both spring concerts will be held at Montrose United Methodist Church (19 S. Park Avenue in Montrose, CO). Dates are Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 3:00 pm.

Tickets are $20 for Adults and Seniors and $5 for students 17 under. Purchase of discounted advance tickets is encouraged because of the limited seating at the Montrose United Methodist Church. Discounted advance tickets are available at Clubb’s in Delta, Howard Davidson Insurance Agency and DeVinny Jewelers in Montrose and are also available for purchase on-line at www.valleysymphony.net.
