WYE MILLS — In an effort to be proactive, the board of directors for the Queen Anne’s Chorale back in early March had rescheduled the April 18 concert to June 27. With the status of gatherings still in doubt, the board took the further step recently to cancel the concert and reschedule the program for April 17, 2021.
The program will be identical and be performed on the main stage at the Todd Performing Arts Center on the campus of Chesapeake College in Wye Mills.
The evening will come alive with popular musical selections “From Stage and Screen.” Queen Anne’s Chorale will perform songs from “The Lion King,” “La La Land,” “Les Miserables” and “Aladdin,” along with many other songs from familiar shows.
The chorale will feature soloist Thomas Beard. Considered a lyric-dramatic-baritone, Beard studied under the direction of Placido Domingo while part of the National Opera in Washington, D.C. He also has performed in operas in Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Jacksonville, as well as touring oversees in Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
A select ensemble and soloists will provide extra music to make the audience smile. The audience will also be asked to sing along on several pieces. A punch and cookie reception will follow the performances.
Also, mark your calendars for the choral’s 2020-2021 season. The holiday concert will be Dec. 5 and will take you back in time for a nostalgic celebration. Tickets are $20 for adults, with children through high school admitted free. For more information, go to www.qachorale.org or call 443-262-8146.
Queen Anne’s Chorale is supported in part through grants from the United Way of Queen Anne’s County, Queen Anne’s County Centre for the Arts and Maryland State Arts Council.
