Lakes Region Singers plan concerts on May 2 & 4

GILFORD — Tthe Lakes Region Singers will greet Spring with two performances offering a crowd-pleasing blend of tender love songs and memorable show tunes in two performances,– one on Friday, May 2, at 7:30 p.m., and one on Sunday, May 4, at 3 p.m. These concerts are open to the public, with a suggested donation of $8 per person or $15 per family, to help cover expenses. They will take place at the First United Methodist Church on Route 11-A in Gilford.

At each performance, the Adult Chorus will feature some poems set to music, including "A Red, Red Rose" by Robert Burns, "I Loved You" by Alexander Pushkin, "Set Me As a Seal" from the Song of Solomon, and a jazzy version of "Dear Heart" composed by Henry Mancini and made famous by Andy Williams. The Youth Chorus will perform an arrangement of "Double Trouble" from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, plus a beautiful original piece, "Will You Teach Me." They will join with the adults in the festive "Come Celebrate the Music" by Mary Lynn Lightfoot. Other adult pieces will include Joseph Martin's rousing "Come to the Music," and a quirky musical arrangement of the poem "Jabberwocky" with unusual "orchestral" sound effects. The concert will conclude with both youth and adult singers performing a dynamic medley of favorites from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Broadway musicals, ending with the heartfelt "May the Road Rise to Meet You" blessing.

Once again, pianist Kelly Cleveland of Belmont will accompany the group with her keyboard talents. Among the guest musicians for these performances will be Phil Breton on oboe and Alison Witham on piccolo and flute.

Directed by Karen Jordan of Laconia, the Lakes Region Singers have been entertaining this area with spring and winter concerts since 1992. The chorale consists of over 40 dedicated community singers from Laconia, Gilford, Gilmanton, and Belmont.

According to Jordan: "Both adult and youth choruses have been hard at work over this long winter. We are ready to celebrate the coming of spring with our varied and exciting program. I can promise some surprises that will definitely bring a smile to all who attend!"
