POWELL, Wyo. - The Northwest Master Chorale will perform in a 7:30 p.m. concert Tuesday, April 23, in the Nelson Performing Arts Center Auditorium on the Northwest College campus.
“We’re excited to share an evening of music with the NWC Sax Quartet and Clarinet Ensemble,” said Anissa Bree, the group’s director. “It should be a fun evening of spirituals, jazz and traditional chamber music.”
Bree, an NWC alumnae and Cody Middle School vocal instructor, said the group will perform “In Virtute Tua,” “Salvation is Created,” “Old Time Spirituals,” “Mama Don’t ’Low,” “Kyrie eleison” and Homeward Bound.” Accompaniment is provided by Karen Bree.
The Sax Quartet, directed by Craig Olson, performs “When I’m Sixty-Four,” a Beatles song by Lennon and McCartney and “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” by Irving Berlin.
Don Christman and the Clarinet Ensemble close the program with Mozart’s “Serenade in C” and another Berlin tune, “Puttin’ on the Ritz.”
Last December the Master Chorale performed Handel’s “Messiah” with the NWC College Choir and Northwest Civic Orchestra. Bree invites anyone interested in joining the group to contact her at 307-899-2003. The chorale begins rehearsals again in September for a December concert.
Admission is free and open to the public.
