Calaveras Arts Council Announces Ovations Opens with Mountain Melody Women’s Chorus
They must sing and we must listen. We will all experience joy.
The ladies of Mountain Melody Women’s Chorus will open the 2016 season of the Calaveras Arts Council’s Ovations Performing Arts Series on Sunday, January 6 at the Dr. Elliott Smart Performing Arts Center at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp. The box office opens at 2:00p and the performance begins at 3:00pm and ends at 5:00pm.
The Butte Fire has impacted Calaveras County in a very personal way. It has changed our landscape but not our hearts. The fire started as the Ovations lineup was being decided and the Ovations committee felt that this season would have special attention on the healing. We believe that art is instrumental in healing process. Several ladies lost their homes to the Butte Fire and as we all know, Art Heals.
The program for the show is spirited with songs like All Aboard, Respect, Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat, Call of the Flowers, Sun Don’t Set in the Morning, Fascinating Rhythm, For Good, Rhapsody, Shenandoah, Operator, Puttin’ on the Ritz, Amazing Grace, Evening Prayer, Java Jive, My Mountain Home, Mokelumne River Song, Seal Lullaby, This Little Light of Mine, Stars I Shall Find, O Sign Out, Be Joyful, Hymn to Theotokos, Maquerule.
