Sung in choral arrangements and as solo songs, University Chorus will perform hits made famous by Judy Garland (“Over the Rainbow," "Trolly Song" and "Zing Went the Strings of My Heart”), Fred Astaire (“They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz” and “Easter Parade”) Frank Sinatra (“High Hopes” and “Serenade in Blue”) Bing Crosby (“White Christmas” and “Swingin’ on a Star”) Gene Kelly (“Singing in the Rain”), The Andrews Sisters (“Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”), Andy Williams (“Moon River”) and others. Accompanist Max Howard will be featured in jazz renditions of some of these songs.
University Chorus will perform at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 13, at Pickens Hall in Heuvelton with a free-will offering and a free performance at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, at St. Lawrence University’s Peterson-Kermani Performance Hall.
As Canton’s community chorus, University Chorus brings together the vocal talents of students, faculty and staff, and community members. Directed by Barry Torres, they perform a varied repertoire in theme-oriented concerts, often with instrumental accompaniment, in the best tradition of American community choral singing.
