The Kahilu theatre presents Waimea Community Chorus’ Rocks the 70’s for their 26thAnnual Spring Concert Saturday, May 25, at 7 pm. Ticket info below.
An honored tradition in the town of Kamuela, the Waimea Community Chorus (WCC) is adding new value to classic hit songs that we know and love so well. WCC takes on a variety of music spanning the entire decade of the 1970’s, with over 50 voices joining together under the direction of Barbara Kopra. Featuring hit songs from popular artists such as Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Joni Mitchell, John Lennon, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Stevie Wonder and many, many more. This music is sure to make you “Fly like an Eagle” as WCC soars to new heights and keeps the spirit of the 70’s alive.
Kopra says, “The chorus is enjoying working on the music. Many of the members are taking joy in reminiscing where they were when they first heard a particular song, but the most challenging thing is to make the choral music sound like the original.” There is no shortage of creative energy in this passionate group of singers and the performance will feature several smaller focus groups in addition to the full choir numbers. Not only will the WCC members be rocking out on stage with some great classics, but they will also be accompanied by Alex Czerny on piano, Larry Boucher on drums, and Joe Barry on bass to bring that “Old Time Rock & Roll” to life.
