The Charleston Men’s Chorus will present “From Britain to Ireland to America: A Journey In Folk Song” on Sunday, March 10 at 3 p.m. at the Sottile Theatre, located at 44 George Street. Traditional folk songs like “Danny Boy,” “Greensleeves,” “Shenandoah,” “Wait for the Wagon” and “Loch Lomond” will take the audience on a multicultural musical experience. Proceeds from this, as well as the chorus’ other concerts, benefit music scholarships given to students studying vocal performance and/or choral conducting at the College of Charleston and Charleston Southern University. Chorus Director Ricard Bordas will conduct, and Pamela Nelson will accompany on piano.
Tickets for the concert are available from all chorus members and at www.cmchorus.com, Monster Music & Movies (West Ashley), Royall Hardware (Mount Pleasant) and the box office the day of the concert if available. Admission is $15 plus $1 surcharge; free to ages 6 and under.
The Charleston Men’s Chorus is a non-profit group of approximately 70 experienced and talented male singers who perform in the tri-county area and are devoted to promoting choral music in the Lowcountry and giving a portion of their proceeds back to the community through music scholarships.
