“The Impossible Dream” is the theme of the Cardinal Chorale’s special encore performance at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 16. Forty-five young singers who were part of the group which toured throughout Ohio last summer will be performing in this concert. The Chorale’s encore performance will be accompanied by Caroline S. Heading and conducted by Charles R. Snyder, who founded the Cardinal Chorale in 1995.
“The 18th edition of the Chorale toured last summer, singing in Columbus, Westerville, Worthington, Marion, South Bass Island, Fremont, Fostoria, Lakeside, Sebring, and Roscoe Village,” said Snyder. “There were 15 concerts and 12 impromptu performances in all during that tour”.
The Chorale will sing a variety of music from the 70 songs performed on tour, including sacred selections, spirituals, music from stage and screen, a song from a French comic opera, patriotic favorites, and folk songs. They will also sing a set of songs by Rodgers and Hart and Cole Porter, arranged for Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians.
The concert is free and open to the public. An offering will be received to help cover expenses for the weekend. The Chorale will also sing for 10:30 a.m. worship on Sunday morning at The Coshocton Presbyterian Church, and will join church choirs for an offertory anthem.
The church is located at 142 N. 4th Street in Coshocton. For more information, contact the Coshocton Presbyterian Church at (740) 622-0486.
