The West Valley Chorus will present an “American Musical Adventure” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the historic Woodland Opera House, Second and Main streets in downtown Woodland.
Popular songs representing musical Americana are on the program. The chorus will sing songs of Broadway, vaudeville, Dixie, country-western, jazz, popular, gospel and patriotic. Songs will include ”No Business Like Show Business,” “Consider Yourself,” “Vo-De-O-Do,” “If you Knew Susie,” “When It’s Night-time in Dixieland,” “Country Roads Take Me Home,” “Take Me to the Land of Jazz,” “Yesterday,” “If the Lord Be Willin’,” and the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.
The 35-man chorus is directed by Ollie Brilhante, and features three quartets. Special guests Saturday night are the Honeybee Trio, three high school performers singing songs made popular by the Andrews Sisters.
The chorus features members from all parts of the valley region. Locally, it sponsors school benefit shows in Davis and Vacaville to encourage and support school choral music programs. Over the past years, the West Valley Chorus has donated nearly $150,000 to schools in those two communities.
