College Choirs to Present Spring Concert
Moreno Valley College Chamber Singers will present its 2016 Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 24 at 7:30 pm in the Student Academic Services Building. General admission tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available at the door or by calling (951) 571-6100, ext. 5087.
The concert will feature a performance of Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, accompanied by organ and orchestra, as well as a set of four choral arrangements of songs from George and Ira Gershwin including jazz settings of They Can't Take That Away From Me, Embraceable You, Our Love Is Here To Stay and a sampling of choral highlights from the Gershwins' historically significant opera Porgy and Bess.
This performance, with a professional orchestra, marks the first time a large instrumental ensemble will preform with the choirs. Alan Scott, director, Chamber Singers, is delighted to provide this musical opportunity for the community. The orchestra is being made possible thanks to the generous support sponsors, including The Shops on El Paseo from Palm Desert, CA.
"It is truly thrilling to see the support from corporate and individual donors," Scott said. "Their commitment to the growth of the music program at the College is most exciting."
