Celebrate spring with the Georgian Court Community Chorale’s spring concert. On Saturday, May 18, enjoy a wide range of music from a Swahili adaption of the Lord’s Prayer to a medley from Rogers’ and Hammerstein’s South Pacific in the Dorothy Marron University Community Chapel on the Lakewood campus at 7:00 p.m.

GCU Chorale singers are from the local and regional community and include men and women of all ages who travel from as far away as Princeton, Fair Lawn, and Little Egg Harbor to sing with the group. Karen Mulhall, director of the chorale, says that she cannot wait for the concert because she especially loves the music from South Pacific.

“It is so exciting, with a combination of funny, romantic, touching, and happy songs with familiar and beautiful melodies.”

Other songs included in the GCU Chorale’s concert will be:

  • “I Carry Your Heart With Me,” with music by David Dickau and poem by e. e. cummings
  • “Come to the Water” by John Foley
  • “Nothin’ Gonna Stumble My Feet” by John Parker and Greg Gilpin
  • “Worthy to Be Praised” by Byron J. Smith
  • “Baba Yetu” by Kris Kiagiri (a Swahili adaption of the Lord’s Prayer from the video game Civilization IV)

“The first half of the concert will have such an interesting variety of songs—some featuring the men, some featuring the women, but all great music,” Ms. Mulhall adds. “’Baba Yetu’ will be exceptional with the added interest of djembe drums.”

Tickets, which can be purchased at the door, are $15 for general admission; $10 for seniors; and free for students and GCU community members with ID. For more information, please call 732-948-9464.
