Shrewsbury Chorale Second 60th Anniversary Concert

Manasquan United Methodist Church

23 Church Street
Manasquan, NJ 08736

The Shrewsbury Chorale has been in the spotlight for 60 years, bringing fine choral music to audiences in Monmouth County. To mark this special occasion, Music Director Neil F. Brown has prepared a stunning program which will be performed at two locations. The 60th Anniversary Concerts will open with a reprise of Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzes. This gorgeous collection of love songs was performed in The Shrewsbury Chorale's very first season in 1957. Accompanying on piano will be the husband and wife team of John Balme and Cynthia Springsteen-Balme. James Whitbourn's ethereal Requiem Canticorum, composed in 2010, will feature Ken Glossbrenner on soprano sax and John Balme on organ. The concerts will be capped off with Handel's Ode for St. Cecilia's Day, accompanied by chamber orchestra. Soloists Irene Choras-Tsakiris, soprano, and David Kellett, tenor, will be featured throughout the program. To mark the occasion, a contingent of former Chorale members have also been invited to sing. If you missed the first 60th Anniversary Concert, you can attend the second concert on Sunday, May 21 at 3 pm at Manasquan United Methodist Church, 23 Church St., Manasquan, NJ. Tickets purchased at the door are $25 (Adult), $20 (Senior/Student) and $10 (Child). Advance sales are $20, $17, and $8. The audience is invited to a reception following the concert.
