The concert will celebrate America with songs that remind us of all that we hold so dear. “It will be a musical tribute about what our country stands for and the beautiful land we call home,” stated Glenn Neff, co-president of the Hilton Head Choral Society. “It will be a fun concert. In fact, we are going to be singing about every state in the union and even take you out to the ballgame!” The evening will include performances of “American Anthem” from Ken Burns’ documentary, “The War”; Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land,” and many more. In their 41st season, the longest running performing arts group on the Island promises a night of memorable entertainment you’ll want to share with family and friends. The 100-voice ensemble will also perform songs that resonate with all Americans –classics like “What a Wonderful World” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
Tim Reynolds is in his 17th season as Artistic Director of the chorus, and feels that this emotional and inspirational catalogue of Americana is exactly what audiences crave to hear these days.
“It’s very important to remind ourselves of the greatness of our country and her people,” says Reynolds. “The music is reminiscent of our past and born from our common struggles and triumphs. From folk songs to standard pops classics – these songs remind us of the strengths created by diverse cultures and traditions, which help make America the greatest nation.”
