Perfect Harmony Men’s Chorus will celebrate 20 years of choral excellence and community involvement with a June 2 concert appropriately titled “Devotion/Commitment”. Themes of devotion to community, family, work, God, country, liberty, and self will be explored through the program selected by Artistic Director Kevin Hage.
Musical selections from Perfect Harmony’s repertoire of the past 20 years will include not only old favorites such as “Danny Boy”, “Sixteen Tons”, “Vive L’Amour” and “America the Beautiful”, but also the first piece sung at Perfect Harmony’s premiere concert in July 1997, “The God Who Gave Us Life” from Randall Thompson’s Testament of Freedom. In addition, the chorus will premiere the commissioned work “Twenty Years: in Celebration of Perfect Harmony” by Margaret Cornils Luke, with lyrics based on submissions from chorus members.
Advanced tickets are $15 and can be obtained from members of the chorus, online at www.perfectharmonychorus.org, or through Brown Paper Tickets (online, at the three locations of the Willy Street Co-op, or at Orange Tree Imports). Tickets at the door will be $20.
