Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

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.
