Our 16th season...
 
 

Let Music Live

Sunday, September 16, 3 p.m.; Monday, September 17, 7 p.m.; Thursday, September 20, 7 p.m.

It's a fact - music lives! In our hearts and minds, in our churches, synagogues, homes and even our cars. It lives in theatres, arenas, restaurants, elevators and our phones. To say that it is an integral part of our lives is an understatement. The compilation of pieces in this concert is designed to showcase the "living" presence and scope of the music that surrounds us. You will hear the powerful "Dance with the Storm" by Andrew Lippa, crowd favorite "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," Ola Gjeilo's glorious "The Ground," and Robert Lowery's "How Can I Keep from Singing?"  From the "let music live" refrain of Joseph Martin's "The Awakening" to the soaring ending notes of Mark Hayes' "Music Makes Me Feel Alive," this will be a concert you will long remember, so plan to be here for each exciting, inspiring piece.

 

Holiday! 2018

Sunday, December 16, 3 p.m.; Monday, December 17, 7 p.m.; Tuesday, September 18, 7 p.m.*

What better way to experience the warmth and joy of the holiday season than to spend some time with the River City Men's Chorus. Joining the chorus for this holiday tradition is soprano Mary Ann Robinson who always delights audiences with glorious renditions of holiday classics. Also featured in Holiday! 2018 is a new suite for Christmas entitled "The Friendly Beasts," a new work by Gwyneth Walker, arranged specifically for and dedicated to the River City Men's Chorus. As always, you will be treated to familiar carols and some newer works as well. Most importantly, we will gather in the spirit of the season to celebrate and enjoy the sounds of beloved holiday music. Please join us for this very special tradition. It won't be the same without you there!

*Please note this is a Tuesday evening performance and not Thursday

 

 

IMAGINE

JUSTICE - FREEDOM - PEACE

Sunday, April 7, 3 p.m.; Monday, April 8, 7 p.m.; Thursday, April 11, 7 p.m.

"Imagine all the people living life in peace ..." Words written by John Lennon; words that resonate today just as profoundly as they did nearly 50 years ago. On so many fronts, we seek justice, fight for freedoms and long for peace. The songs chosen for this concert focus on those aims and ideals. You will hear such moving tributes in Mark Hayes' thrilling suite based on Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." The chorus will perform a setting of "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor," the last stanza of Emma Lazarus' sonnet "The New Colossus" which are lines of welcome inscribed on a bronze plaque in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. You will hear the emotionally stirring "Glory" that was performed by John Legend and Common for the 2014 film "Selma." This is only a taste of what's in store as we bring you the stories and music of those who struggle with injustice and work towards peaceful resolutions.

 "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.  I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one."
