The Campbell River Singers’ spring concert will appeal to a broad range of musical tastes.

Selections for  Look To The Rainbow, the choir’s spring concert, were chosen by conductor John Montgomery and span a range of musical genres.

There are light classical pieces such as Alleluia and Cantate Brasilia! which gives a contemporary Samba rhythm to traditional Latin text.

The Spinning Song will bring back memories for those who took piano lessons as a youngster.

Traditional spirituals are given a new twist with Swing Low performed with a Doo Wop backdrop, while the well-known Battle of Jericho is a showstopper with a stirring arrangement by Mark Hayes.

Broadway is also represented in Look to the Rainbow  with a selection from the musical Finian’s Rainbow.  Rounding out the presentation is the Celtic inspired Dover Cliffs,  a Swing/Jazz medley, and other jazz standards.

Special guest for this concert is Fiddlejam, a diverse group of fiddle players and accompanists, based in Comox ranging in age from six to ninety-six.

Mark May 1 on the calendar, call up a friend and come enjoy a fun afternoon of music and song.  Tickets are available at the door, from choir members, or at Odyssey Computers downtown. The concert takes place at St. Peter’s Anglican church at 2 p.m.
