Adirondack Community Chorus brings 50s and 60s pop music to View

Posted

OLD FORGE — The Adirondack Community Chorus will bring its concert “To Everything There is a Season,” filled with rocking tunes from the 50s and 60s to View on Sunday, July 11, at 4 p.m. The concert kicks off View’s live summer performance season. Under the direction of Peg Nuspliger, this choir is sure to get your toes tapping and send you on a trip down memory lane.

“To Everything There is a Season” is a concert of songs that reflect the changes and developments of pop music from the end of WWII in 1945 to the Kennedy assassination in 1963.

The show begins with songs from the 1940s and 50s which showcase the decade where, for the first time, teenagers had their own money and used it to go out and dance to songs the choir will perform such as “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “Rockin’ Robin,” “Purple People Eater,” and “American Pie” sung by Michael Ferris.

The concert will also pay homage to the music that emerged from protests for Civil Rights and against the Vietnam War in the 60s. The ACC will honor these movements with several pieces throughout the concert, including the famous Vietnam protest songs, “Blowing in the Wind,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” and “Die Gedanken Sind Frei,” which will be conducted by Claire Haile.

Under the direction of Peg Nuspliger, with percussion by Bill Sawyer and narration by Dick LeClar, “To Everything There is a Season” is sure to leave you humming the iconic songs of the 50s and 60s for days after you leave the theatre. 

The concert is free of charge, but donations will be accepted. For more information, go online to ViewArts.org or call 315-369-6411, ext. 215. View is located at 3273 State Route 28.
