Heritage Chorale will be featured at park concert
Next week’s performance in the Parks and Recreation Department's 1985 Concerts-in-the-Park series — at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday on the dance slab in Landa Park — will produce several first time events as well as at least one second time event.
For one thing, it will be the first time that the Heritage Chorale community chorus (which usually has performed many-styled but mainly classical choral music in formal spring and fall indoor concerts) is to be the featured performer.
Other first aspects are that this will be the Chorale’s first summertime concert, first outdoor performance, and first program that contains no music in a language other than English.
This program, in fact, is made up entirely of American patriotic music, both old and new.
The tunes are mostly rousing ones that all Americans know and love to hear (included are Stephen Foster songs and a special version of Yellow Rose of Texas), but they will be performed with Chorale’s usual insistence on fine quality singing and musical performance, Chorale officials noted.
The conductor will be C. Richard Morns, the Chorale’s Director for the last three of its six years of ex-sistence, while the accompanist will
also be the regular one — the very accomplished Jo Ann Lemmon, playing a piano furnished expressly for this outdoor event (and that may well be another first for this concert series).
Especially interesting is another first: the Heritage Chorale’s first public singing of country’ stlye music — in a Fred Waring square dance number.
This leads right into the second time event for this concert: the square dance song will simultaneously be performed and by some of the Toby’s School of Dance dancers who so very’ much pleased the audience at the July 16 Concert-in-the-Park, which was put on by them and other local dance companies.
Now entering its seventh year after having been founded as a choral supplement to the annual November Wurstfest, the Chorale has become a Hill Country all-music-style. all age. high-quality-performance community chorus — performing at least twice a year — that seeks to preserve as much as possible of the area's thriving German Saengerbund traditions while recognizing other local heritages as well.
Based six years of solid foundation provided by the leadership of local physician, arts promoter, and former Chorale President Dr. Fred
Frueholz, Jr. and continuing under the direction of C. Richard Morris, the accompanist, of pianist Jo Ann Lemmon, and the administration of 1985 President Dorothy B. Johnson, the Chorale is also continuing to try to help channel inevitable future community arts growth into another long-standing American cutural arts pattern.
This is one emphasizing quality performance of all music while singing British and American music in English, Italian music in Italian, Spanish music in Spanish. German music in German, etc.
Another aim is to include in most programs music that is sacred, secular, classical, popular, and novelty. The local audience for this shows signs of growing and all interested singers are urged now to come enjoy sharing their talents with the group to this purpose
Many — but far from all — of the present members of the Chorale have exceptional singing voices, but the desired quality seems to be achieved mostly by a combination of insightful instruction, an outstanding accompanist. and careful forts to blend voices
No one is required to pass an audition to sing w ith the Chorale
