What A Wonderful Spring Concert

Posted May 19th, 2017 by Masterworks Chorale  Category: Arts & Entertainment

 

(Toledo), (OH) – Masterworks Chorale will be holding their annual Collage Concert on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 8PM. This event will feature dancers from the Ballet Theatre of Toledo, singers from the Junior Choral Society, and will be held at the historic Valentine Theatre.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
are also on the faces of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands saying “how do you do?”
They’re really saying “I love you.”

These lyrics describing racial harmony were immortalized in Louis Armstrong’s rendition of “What a Wonderful World,” and a choral setting of this jazz standard will also form the centerpiece of our concert at the historic Valentine Theatre. In a program that includes the collaboration of exceptional Toledo artists including the Ballet Theatre of Toledo and the Junior Choral Society, we’ll celebrate folksongs and popular music from across the globe. Not only will this music illuminate the similarity of our human experience regardless of culture and language, but the participation of the high school dancers of the Ballet Theatre of Toledo and the fourth through ninth grade singers of the Junior Choral Society will also demonstrate the ways our communal unity extends across all stages of life.

Tickets are Level A $30, Level B $25, and Student $17, and can be purchased through the Valentine Theatre. Visit http://www.valentinetheatre.com/ or call 419.242.2787.
