The Oak Ridge Chorus will perform Broadway classics and American music in a concert on Saturday, April 29.
The concert is presented by the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association. The chorus is led by Chorus Director Jaclyn Johnson, who was recently appointed.
It will be a “delightful evening of American music,” a press release said.
The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at the First Baptist Church of Oak Ridge.
It will feature inspirational music of America and its people through folk songs, spirituals, and many well-known classics of the Broadway stage, including music from “Les Miserables,” “Hairspray,” and “Wicked,” the press release said.
“As I was preparing music for this concert and deciding what pieces would best highlight the beautiful voices of the Oak Ridge Chorus, a theme began to emerge: music by American composers,” Johnson said. “America has a rich tradition of creating music that sounds distinctly ‘American’ from jazz and blues, to spirituals and folk songs, to the music of Broadway. his concert will be sure to delight audience members from every walk of life!”
