Do you remember dancing to the Richard Rodger’s tune Blue Moon at your high school dances in the ‘50s? Do you remember Gene Kelly’s rendition of Gershwin’s I Got Rhythm in the movie An American in Paris or, going way back, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers’ performance of Jerome Kern’s I Won’t Dance in the movie Roberts or the toe tapping song by Meredith Wilson, Lida Rose in the movie Music Man? What about Leonard Bernstein’s Somewhere from West Side Story?
These are just some of the songs by favorite past composers that will be presented by the SunBird Singers at their spring concert Music to Remember. The concert will be held on March 9 and 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the SunBird Clubhouse Ballroom.
Other memorable songs that will be featured are a medley of favorites by George M. Cohan, including Yankee Doodle Boy and You’re a Grand Old Flag, Henry Mancini’s Charade and John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s Yesterday. The SunBird Singers will wrap up the concert with an all-time favorite, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma from the stage and screen musical Oklahoma.
There will also be some solo performances of more Music to Remember.
As usual, SunBird Singers’ concerts are free; however, donations taken at the door to help defray the cost of music are greatly appreciated.
The Singers and their directors, Owen and Joyce Bae, look forward to taking you on this journey of Music to Remember.
