Queen Anne’s Chorale presents ‘Juke Box USA’
WYE MILLS — Queen Anne’s Chorale is bringing classic pop songs to life in its upcoming spring concert. “Juke Box USA” features favorites from The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, and others in a musical hit parade that will take you from the Roaring ‘20s through the Swinging ‘60s. The concert takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 29, at Chesapeake College’s Todd Performing Arts Center in Wye Mills.
“This will be a really fun, family-oriented experience with lots of variety,” said Chorale Artistic Director Robert Huntington.
He has chosen a selection of songs that will delight audience members of all ages. These include jazz standard “Bye Bye Blackbird,” The Chords’ “Shboom,” The Beatles’ “If I Fell,” and Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” The concert also features well-loved movie songs, including “Moon River” from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “As Time Goes By” from “Casablanca.” The central theme will be underscored by a pre-concert video loop of juke boxes playing popular songs.
A unique feature of Queen Anne’s Chorale performances is audience participation. The audience at “Juke Box USA” will be joining Chorale members as they sing a rousing rendition of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.” In addition, there will be several juke box-related trivia questions.
The concert will be followed by a reception, where attendees can mingle with Chorale members and enjoy free refreshments.
Tickets are $15 for adults and can be purchased at the door or from a Chorale member. There is free admission for children through high school, provided they are accompanied by an adult.
The venue is handicapped accessible.
