Merrickville Children and Adult Choirs present their “Pop into Summer” concert on Saturday, June 3 at 6:30 pm at Merrickville United Church. The choirs will be joined by guests Rideau Voices, a vocal quartet, Giocoso Strings led by Polly McCombe, and Kevin McCleery playing the guitar.
The concert features popular songs from the 50s and 60s right through to today. From the Righteous Brothers to the Beatles to the Supremes, there is something for everyone in this toe tapping concert. A highlight of the evening will be when both choirs and Giocoso Strings join together for a beautiful number that will bring tears to your eyes.
Susan Maconnachie, Choir Director, and Kathleen Howard, Accompanist, have once again volunteered their time and shared their musical talents to prepare the children and adults for what will be a wonderful evening of music.
“We have had a lot of fun putting together pop songs spanning over 60 years, and many of us have stepped outside our usual musical comfort zone. Merrickville Choirs have gone Glee!” says Maconnachie.
Admission is by donation and proceeds from the concert will go to the Merrickville United Church which graciously provides rehearsal space for these community choirs.
