INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The 80-voice Treasure Coast Chorale’s upcoming concert will celebrate all of the holidays from Halloween through the New Year on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Vero Beach.
The music featured will showcase popular songs that are traditionally sung at Halloween, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year programs with a special tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Currently being rehearsed are two medleys of Christmas carols that will challenge the audience to count how many they can recognize in three minutes. They will also perform “Double Trouble” from the movie “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and a tongue-twisting medley from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Solos and small group pieces round out the concert.
The Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Michael Carter, is celebrating its 14th year as a community chorus of experienced voices singing four very popular concerts a season for Vero Beach audiences.
On Dec. 19 and 20, this chorale and the First Baptist Church will present its 45th annual presentation of Handel’s “Messiah” with full orchestra and soloists. Other concerts will take place in March and May 2016.
Featured musicians in November will be Judy Carter on the piano, guitarist Dave Mundy, and drummer Richie Mola with the Festival Brass quartet and “The Dolls,” Vero’s renowned singing trio.
Held at the First Baptist Church, 2206 16th Ave., Vero Beach, doors will open at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. evening performance. There are no tickets and no admission charge but the audience will be asked to give a generous offering to help offset the costs of this musical gift to the community.
