The Starlite Chorale is pleased to announce that we have put together a new show, entitled “Some Enchanted Evening”. It is our first “Great American Songbook” show since 2007! We have been working on this show over the summer, and are looking forward to performing it for the first time near the end of September. We will be singing some of our favorite arrangements of the great popular music of the 20th century such as:
When You’re Smiling,
Alexander’s Ragtime Band,
The Very Thought of You,
Bye, Bye, Blackbird,
Chattanooga Choo Choo!
We will also be performing selections from the 1927 “Show Boat”, the masterpiece by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein that changed the Broadway musical forever; we’ll be singing Cole Porter’s “Easy to Love”; and an arrangement in which Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Some Enchanted Evening” (from “South Pacific”) and “We Kiss in a Shadow” (from “The King and I”) provide a beautiful counterpoint for each other.
We are especially proud to have some new arrangements. We will be performing the Carole King/Jerry Goffin dance hit “The Locomotion”, as well as “Roses Are Red” and “My Melody of Love” by the incomparable Bobby Vinton, all three arranged by our director, the incomparable and inimitable, the Rev. Dr. Anthony J Godlefski!
So set aside the time and date on your calendar – 4:30 PM on September 23, 2012! Wend your way to the picturesque seaside town of Ocean Grove, New Jersey. We will be performing in the unique and historic Bishop Janes Tabernacle, an oval building built in 1877 . It sits right next to the Great Auditorium, which itself is hard to miss!
