A spring fling with Langley Community Chorus

Imagine the sound of more than 80 voices – from every walk of life – united in song.

The professionally-directed Langley Community Chorus presents From Brahms to Broadway, its 2011 spring concert. Think classic songs and show tunes, from the Theme from Cinderella to the Sound of Music, Singing in the Rain, Oklahoma and more.

The chorus, founded in 1992 with 14 singers, has grown to more than 75 members today, with members from Langley and neighbouring municipalities united by their love of singing.

The chorus performs two main public concerts a year, as well as appearing at seniors residences, guest performances at community events and more.

Music director Martin Anderle, who comes from a professional background, is a relatively new addition. The members say they enjoy his charming German accent and appreciate his good-humoured patience.

Also new is accompanist Anita Coomba, who draws from a wide variety of musical experience, and exhibits a good sense of humour, and willingness to help – wonderful resources for the chorus.

There will be two performances. The first is May 7 at Willoughby Christian Reformed Church, 10525 72 Ave. at 7:30 p.m. The second is May 15 at Sharon United Church, 21562 Old Yale Road, Langley, at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15. Students $10 and children under six are free. Available at the door or from chorus members.
