“Well-Seasoned Songs” is the theme for the Annual Salado Community Chorus Spring Concert set for 7 p.m. Thursday in the First Baptist Church Auditorium, at 210 S. Main St. in Salado.
The concert is free to the public.
Jim Mohon is director of the 58-voice chorus. The accompanist is David Kaulfus.
“The choral selections at this concert represent all the seasons of the year,” Mohon said. “The songs will bring back memories of every month of the listener’s life especially holidays and special times of the year. ‘Well-seasoned’ means they will immediately connect with recognizable days,” Mohon said.
The repertoire performed by the full chorus, solos, ensembles and quartets will include “Autumn Leaves,” “Ghost Riders in the Sky,” “Auld Lang Syne,” “Be True to Your School,” “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “Faith of Our Fathers,” “Irish Eyes are Smiling,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Thank You, Lord,” “Send the Light/He Reigns,” “A Tribute to the Armed Services,” “M-O-T-H-E-R,” “Let Me Call You Sweetheart,” and a special solo by Kaulfus titled “Money: That’s What I Want!”
Kaulfus has pre-recorded the piano track on an electric keyboard and will accompany himself “live” on trumpet.
The membership of the chorus consists of Central Texas singers from Copperas Cove, Temple, Belton, Harker Heights, Killeen, Nolanville, Georgetown and Salado.
Weekly rehearsals are held on Tuesday nights from 6 to 7:30 p.m. during the months of August, September, October and November for the Christmas concert. Spring show rehearsals begin in January and last through April and are also held on Tuesday evenings.
Visitors are welcome to the rehearsals and to consider becoming a regular member of the singing group.
The chorus also performs a Christmas show each year in early December.
