Promising a spicy combo to tempt a variety of musical tastes, Quadra Singers and guest performers will present Musical Potpourri April 27 and 28.

“This spring’s concert blends songs and theatre into an uplifting celebration of spring, with a wide range of entertainment,” says choir director Linda Cannon.

Cannon says the choral mix will include jazzy showtunes, rousing gospel, African and Indian folk songs with drums, a piece from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro – and much more!

Guest performances will include: a medley of British isles folks songs by a harp duet, special appearances by a newly-formed men’s ensemble, songs by a trio of female voices and an accapella duet. The concert will also include a monologue from one of Theatre Quadra’s upcoming performance of one-act plays.

“Following the success of our Winter Gathering, which included a number of guest performers, we’re encouraging people to come out and enjoy a show that promises another generous helping of island talent, all delivered with that warm and exhuberant Quadra spirit,” Cannon adds.
Quadra Singers will take their spring concert overseas again this year, with a Sunday afternoon concert on Cortes Island. To see Musical Potpourri, mark your calendar for Saturday, Apr. 27 or Sunday, Apr. 28. For Saturday’s concert at the Quadra Island Legion, doors open at 7 p.m., and show starts at 7:30. Sunday’s concert at the Gorge Hall on Cortes starts at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are available for the Quadra concert at Hummingbird and Works of H’art ($10 advance, $12 door, under 12 half price and under five free.)
