Ladies’ Night Out Women’s Chorus, Rutland County’s women’s chorus, is presenting its Spring Tour for 2013. Titled “Songs for Children of All Ages,” this program will be offered six times in area communities:
- Sunday April 28: Wallingford – First Congregational Church, 2 p.m.
- Friday May 3: Brandon – Town Hall (benefit), 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday May 4: Pittsfield – Federated Church, 3 p.m.
- Tuesday May 7: Castleton – Federated Church, 7:30 p.m.
- Friday May 10: Proctor – Union Church, 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday May 18: Weston – Church on the Hill, 7:30 p.m.
There are 20 women singing in this year’s group, coming from Weston, Wallingford, Dorset, Pawlet, Proctor, West Rutland and Rutland. Director Lucy Allen Tenenbaum has brought together two accompanists to enhance the sound of the women’s chorus, Jacob McLaughlin, pianist, and Glendon Ingalls, upright bass, electric bass and trumpet. The program is a fun and funny blend of songs from many genres. Two songs from the “Girl Group” era of 1940s through the 1950s will bring back memories. One group of songs was composed by Aaron Copland and arranged for choir by various well-known arrangers, the most famous of whom is Irving Fine, whose “Songs from ‘Alice in Wonderland’” are also in the program. Every spring, the “theme song” is the Quaker hymn Gwyneth Waker arranged, “How Can I Keep from Singing?”
