Woodland Chamber Singers celebrate moms, veterans

The Woodland Chamber Singers, along with artistic director Lenore Turner-Heinson and accompanist Lori Jarvey, presents its spring concert, “A Dedication,” in two performances this weekend at Pioneer High School in Woodland.

Showtimes are at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Pioneer, 1400 Pioneer Ave. Tickets are $5 for adults and free for children under 12, available at Watermelon Music, 207 E St. Davis and 527 Main St. in Woodland, and at the door.

The program features songs devoted to both Mother’s Day, including “Simple Gifts,” arranged by Mark Hayes; “If Music Be The Food of Love,” by David Dickau; and “Nothin’ Gonna Stumble My Feet,” by Greg Gilpin and John Parker.

In a tribute to Memorial Day, inspiring selections include “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor,” by Irving Berlin; “Sing Your Way Home,” by Joseph Martin; and “Anthem from Chess,” arranged by John Purifoy.

As proud supporters of music education, the Chamber Singers also will highlight the talents of choral and band students from Woodland High School, under the direction of John Abigana, as well as a Woodland High graduate-turned-professional soloist.

The Woodland Chamber Singers is a nonprofit, nonauditioned chorus that presents two concerts per year, in mid-December and in early May, and is open to all in the community who love to sing and can commit to weekly rehearsals.
