Men’s Choral Spring Concert

Wellsboro Men's Chorus, WAHS Men's Chorus & HG Young Men's Choir

 

by John Vogt - May 16, 2019

UPDATE: Concert is at 7:30pm

On today’s broadcast Home Page Correspondents, Johanna Vogt and Regan Regina talk with Thomas Reindl who is the President of the Wellsboro Men’s Chorus, Pianist Pat Davis, Director Christina Simonis, and First Tenor Steve Marshall talk about the BIG COMBINED MEN’S CHORAL SPRING CONCERT coming May 23rd at 7:30 PM. This delightful musical experience takes place at 227 Nichols Street in the Wellsboro Area School District Building. (In the Wellsboro High School Auditorium – the cost is a free will donation to the scholarship fund)

Christina Simonis will be directing, and Pat Davis will be accompanying the performance on the piano. The concert will be a combined presentation with the Wellsboro Area High School Men’s Chorus directed by Dan Sensenig with accompanists Jessa Lohr and Ariana Carleton, and the Hamilton-Gibson Young Men’s Choir directed by Thomas Putnam.

Mr. Reindl said that the Wellsboro Men’s Chorus has been around for over seventy years. It began back in 1946. The chorus started with four men who loved to sing spirituals and the popular songs of the era. Today the chorus has expanded to twenty-five to thirty people and on occasion up to forty. The chorus is known for their diversity of music singing a lot of different songs including show tunes, spiritual songs, whimsical arrangements, and fun songs that are loved by everyone.

Pat Davis has been the pianist or the Wellsboro Men’s Chorus for forty-nine years. Pat said that she has seen a lot of changes to the Men’s Chorus over the years. Back in the day things were much more formal and traditional. As the years went by things became more informal, and the chorus began to include several high school students. One of Pat’s earliest memories was when she was just fourteen years old. It was the very first time that she had played piano for the Men’s Chorus. That opened the door for her to one day join the Men’s Chorus as a woman.

Director Christina Simonis said that they have invited the Wellsboro High School Men’s Choir and the Hamilton Gibson Men’s Choir for this special presentation. There will be several outstanding favorites featured including one from a Broadway show, along with another audience favorite, “River in Judea.” Christina said that they also do a lot of American Folk Songs and other numbers from shows.

The concert will open with the Wellsboro Men’s Chorus singing “Seize the Day” from the Disney musical “Newsies” followed by the three choruses singing “Tell My Father” from the musical, “The Civil War.” The soloist is Aiden Locke from the HG Young Men’s Choir.
Each of the choirs will then perform several selections individually before all three combine to close the concert with “River In Judea.”

Support our Wellsboro Men’s Chorus! A freewill donation can be made at the door. For information, call Wellsboro Men’s Chorus president Thomas Reindl at 570-724-8496.
