The Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra will wrap up its current season with an evening of Broadway tunes, some familiar and some not so well-known, at 8 p.m. tonight in Jackson Hall at the Mondavi Center.

“Our concert is called ‘Easy to Love,” and it celebrates the music of Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter and Jerome Kern, with a little bit of Andrew Lloyd Webber as well,” said conductor Donald Kendrick.

“There will be a lot of famous melodies and lyrics. A lot of people will know some of these tunes, like ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin,’ ” Kendrick continued. “But maybe not as many people know ‘With a Song In My Heart,’ which comes from a Rodgers and Hart musical from 1930, ‘Spring Is Here.’ ”

“We’ll also sing ‘Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?’ which is from a 1957 musical that Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote for television called ‘Cinderella.’

“And we’ll do ‘I Didn’t Know What Time It Was,’ from the 1939 Rodgers and Hart musical ‘Too Many Girls,’ ” Kendrick said. The tune also turned up in the 1957 film “Pal Joey.”

“Our soloists are all ‘Broadway babies,’ who have a lot of musical theater experience,” Kendrick said.

The tenor soloist, Tevye Ditter, is a graduate of UC Davis who appeared with the now disbanded Davis Comic Opera Company, and has received regional recognition as the winner of an Elly Award.

Soprano Christi Amonson is coming from Arizona, where she’s appeared with the Southern Arizona Symphony. Mezzo Kristin Dauphinais likewise comes from Arizona, where she is on the faculty of the University of Arizona.

Baritone Ian Greenlaw has sung at La Scala, in the 2008 production of Lorin Maazel’s opera “1984,” which was directed by Robert Lepage, whose touring shows have visited UCD several times. A Lepage-directed cycle of Wagner’s “Ring” operas is currently under way at the Metropolitan Opera.

The Choral Society is coming off a March presentation of the Verdi Requiem at Mondavi, which drew some 1,400 people despite heavy rain and high winds on the evening of the performance.

“People were really determined to come an hear us despite the weather, and we were really pleased so many of them made it to the concert,” Kendrick said. “We recorded the Verdi, and we are working with the musicians’ union to get it released as a live recording on CD. We’re very pleased with the way the tape sounds. It’s in the pipeline.”

As compared with the deeply religious intensity of the Verdi Requiem, “this concert will be a lot of fun, with toe-tapping music from the Broadway stage,” Kendrick said.
