March 16, 2011 |

The 29-voice chamber choir on tour from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore., will perform a concert of vocal music at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Episcopal Church of St. Martin, 630 Hawthorn Lane, Davis. In lieu of tickets, a free-will offering will be suggested.

The Chamber Singers, conducted by Scott Tuomi, have toured nationally and internationally. Sunday’s program will feature choral works ranging from J.S. Bach and early music from Monteverdi to works by contemporary composers Eric Whitacre and Z. Randall Stroop.

Davis marks the third stop on the Chamber Singers’ tour, en route from concerts in Roseburg and Medford, Ore. Tuomi and the Chamber Singers will present workshops with choirs from Davis schools on Monday, and then continue their tour to Napa, Oakland and San Francisco.

For more information, contact Shipley Walters (530) 756-7911 or AShipW@aol.com.

Winters presents ‘The Foreigner’

What happens when a painfully shy Englishman is mistaken for a “foreigner” in southern Georgia? The locals believe he doesn’t understand a word of English and manage to spill all their secrets in front of him. Audience members will find out if he can help save the rustic lodge and its colorful inhabitants in a Winters Theatre Company production of Larry Shue’s “The Foreigner” this spring at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave.

Tickets for the gala opening at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 1, are $15. For all other performances — at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, April 2-9, and 2 p.m. Sundays, April 3 and 10 — are $10 general and $6 for seniors and students.

For more information or reservations, e-mail winterstheatre@gmail.com or call (530) 795-4014.

Sign up now for summer theater camp

The Woodland Opera House is taking registration for its youth summer theater camp, Show Biz Kidz. It’s an annual program designed to be an introduction to theater performance for area youths age 8-18.

Students will spend four weeks studying musical theater technique, including, singing, dancing, voice projection, characterization, theater terminology, and theater etiquette and professionalism. Students will develop performance skills and will be given an equal opportunity to shine on stage. The camp will culminate with four performances of a Broadway-style musical revue, “School’s Out for Summer.”

The show will include popular songs about summertime fun, ranging from 1920s favorites like “In the Good Old Summertime” and “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” to 1960s Beach Boys surf melodies, and from 1970s pop tunes like “Walkin’ On Sunshine” and “School’s Out for Summer” to Sheryl Crow’s summertime classic, “Soak Up the Sun.”

Classes for students ages 8 to 10 will run from 9 a.m. to noon Mondays through Fridays, July 5-22. Classes for students ages 11-18 will run from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the same dates.  The performances will be July 30 and 31 at the Woodland Opera House, Second and Main streets

Registration information is available at http://www.woodlandoperahouse.org or (530) 666-9617.
