EUREKA SPRINGS -- Talk about a diverse crowd! Every Tuesday night, a group that includes local elected officials, doctors, artists, teachers, a librarian, a train conductor, a construction manager, some retirees and many more get together and sing sweet, harmonious sounds for two hours.
Why? Because they love the music, the camaraderie and the chance to perform as The Ozarks Chorale.
The group's next performance has them stepping out of Eureka Springs and into Springdale's The Jones Center Chapel Auditorium for their "Sounds of the Season" concert on Friday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. This concert kicks off the season with holiday favorites, mellow and up-tempo Jazz-inspired standards and beautiful classical works the whole family will enjoy.
"Maybe the theme for this season should be 'The Rhythm of the Holidays,' because many of our pieces are so intensely rhythmic and exciting," says Artistic Director and Conductor Beth Withey of the upcoming concert. "But we balance it all out with stunning classical pieces like the 'Ave Maria' by Rachmaninoff, that great spiritual,'Mary had a Baby' and so many of the best loved Holiday standards and great traditional favorites like 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,' and 'Carol of the Bells.'"
"With music like this to perform," adds Withey, "it really is the most wonderful time of the year!" Tickets for Nov. 30 concert at The Jones Center are $10 at the door, students are free.
