Choral Concert, 21 FEB 2010 Peru State College

Denis Plutalov on Piano

Those who braved the inclement weather--cold and nasty--on Sunday afternoon to attend the Choral Concert in the Peru State Theater received a just reward for their efforts.

The Madrigal Singers, the Concert Choir, and the Misty Blues warmed everyone. You might want to take a look, too, at last year's concert and the one from 2008.

I posted photographs from Sunday's festivities.

Concert Choir

With Dr. Tom Ediger and (soon-to-be Dr.) Denis Plutalov behind the piano, the Concert Choir began the evening with with a flourish.

I uploaded to You Tube two of the many fine pieces the choral group performed, Wolfgang Mozart's stirring "Gloria in Excelsis" and Mark Hayes' uplifting arrangement of "America, The Beautiful."

Madrigal Singers

I always enjoy filming the Madrigal Singers, especially when they and their costumes take center stage each Holiday Season for the fun-filled Madrigal Dinner.

You will find two of the group's offerings on You Tube: "Which is the Properest Day to Sing" and "You are the New Day."

Misty Blues

As always, the Misty Blues closed the evening's concert with glitter, fanfare, song, and dance.

What fun.

This time around, I uploaded two numbers for your watching and listening enjoyment: "Higher Love" and "Don't Rock the Boat."

Enjoy the show.
