Knightly News Performances throughout the Chicagoland
Posted on July 28th, 2009
It was a joy to sing another summer with the Peoria Municipal Band under the direction of Dr. David Vroman. We had three concerts:
Wednesday, July 22nd on the Riverfront with the unique theme of “Halloween in July”
Friday, July 24th was held at The Shoppes of Grand Prairie
Sunday, July 26th was the final performance was at the Glen Oak Park Amphitheater with the band playing Safari Songs.
I sang four selections that encompassed the gamut of opera:
“Je veux vivre” from Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette,
“Summertime” from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess,
“Think of Me” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, and closing with
“Poor Wand’ring One” from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance.
The band did a wonderful job and it was a joy to sing for my hometown friends! Thank you to everyone who came out to the concerts!
