Homecoming Concert: Salter Concert Hall, 7:30PM
As part of the College's 2013 Homecoming celebration, the Wabash College Glee Club will present its first concert of the year at 7:30 pm on Saturday evening, September 21, in Salter Concert Hall, Fine Arts Center.
This year's 60-member Glee Club includes 20 new members from the class of 2017. The Homecoming Concert will offer a sampler of Glee Club "chestnuts" as well as several new selections. The program opens with the Glee Club marching into Salter Hall while singing the best and longest fight song in the country, which is, of course, Old Wabash. From the Club's traditional repertoire, the group will present Down by the Sally Gardens, a lyric Irish air that reminds us of the joys - and sorrows - of being young and in love. Brothers, Sing On, regarded as the "national anthem" of men's glee clubs, revels in unmitigated exaltation, ardor, and testosterone-laden camaraderie.
Additional numbers on Saturday's program include a lively arrangement of the spiritual Somebody Got Lost, as well as composer Scott Farthing's stirring invitation, Come Travel With Me - inspired by Walt Whitman's poem Song of the Open Road. Pierce Velderman '15 will present a solo rendition of the well-known Irish song Danny Boy. Glee Club alumni will be invited to join the group onstage for the singing of Alma Mater, directed by Zachary Goldberg '14, the Club's president.
The Wabash College Glee Club is directed by Richard Bowen and accompanied by Cheryl Everett. The program is free and open to the public.
Young Frankenstein opens at the Vanity Theater under the direction of John P. Blair. It is a comical, fast-paced performance, which should appeal to adult audiences. Based on the 1974 Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder comedy film, the audience will be impressed with the edgy humor and language. The sets and costumes are striking as they are featured in total black and white, making it an innovative display. Another impressive element is the choreography by local expert Lisa Kochert Warren. The show is full of true technical dancing and hard-core choreography.
Tickets are $12 for adults, 17 and over, $8 for children. A $2 discount is given the those with a Wabash Student ID. Show times are September 20, 21, 27, 28 at 7:30 pm and September 22 & 29 at 2:00 pm. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the Vanity at 765-362-7077 or search the web at www.sugarcreekplayers.org.
