Merrickville Children and Adult Choirs present their “Jazz and Pops on a Spring Evening” concert on Sunday, June 2 at 6:30 pm at the Merrickville United Arts Centre. The choirs will be joined by Rideau Voices, a vocal trio.
This is a toe tapping concert with favourite songs, including Puttin’ on the Ritz, Ain’t Misbehavin’, The Joint is Jumpin’, and Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off. From Irving Berlin to George and Ira Gershwin, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Susan Maconnachie, Choir Director, and Kathleen Howard, Accompanist, both multi-talented local musicians, have been working hard with the choirs to prepare for this evening of entertainment.
“I am so privileged to be part of the community spirit that flourishes through Merrickville Choirs,” says Susan. “Singers of all ages continue to prove Ella Fitzgerald correct: ‘The only thing better than singing is more singing.’”
Come out and support your local choirs. Admission is by donation and proceeds from the concert will go to the Merrickville Food Cupboard.
