GCU Chorale to Sing Classics and Broadway Favorites
Lakewood, N.J., May 3, 2012—On Saturday, May 5, the gifted Georgian Court University Chorale will present their annual spring concert at 7:30 p.m. in the Casino Auditorium on the Lakewood campus. Expect to enjoy an array of selections from classical music to Broadway show tunes.
The GCU Chorale is comprised of singers from the university as well as people from the surrounding townships. Classical selections for the evening include Vivaldi’s “Gloria in Excelsis,” Thomas Morley’s “Now is the Month of Maying,” and Howard Helvey’s “I Want Jesus to Walk with Me.”
Chorale director Karen Mulhall is excited to present this program, which she describes as a varied audience-pleaser. “Along with the classical section, there will be a walk down memory lane with pieces from Broadway to Hollywood,” she says. “There will also be an African piece accompanied by conga and djembe drums.”
Selections from Broadway and film include the title songs from Oklahoma!, Ain’t Misbehavin’, and 42nd Street, as well as “Everything's Coming up Roses” from Gypsy and “All That Jazz” from Chicago.
Tickets are $10 per person, $5 per senior citizen or non-GCU student, and free to GCU community members with ID. Reservations are not required. For more information, contact Kathleen Settles at 732.987.2624.
