As Time Goes By: Songs from the Movies
May 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Greater Freeport Community Chorus’ spring concert showcases movie music, some familiar, some less so. The 65-voice chorus, made up of residents of about 15 Midcoast communities, are led by Director Virgil Bozeman and accompanied by pianist Kellie Moody.
India produces more films annually than any other country, so it’s fitting that among the concert’s featured pieces will be an arrangement of Indian composer A.R. Rahman’s “Jai Ho.” The Oscar-winning song accompanied a dance sequence performed during the ending credits of the 2008 movie Slumdog Millionaire, set and filmed in India but actually a British film. “Let the River Run” is another Academy Award winner, written by American singer-songwriter Carly Simon for the 1988 film Working Girl. The arrangements of “Jai Ho” and “Let the River Run” both will feature percussion accompaniment. The wide-ranging concert will also include “Exsultate Justi,” from Steven Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun; “As Time Goes By,” from the classic 1940s film Casablanca; and an arrangement of “Into the West,” part of the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Solo performances will include “Lara’s Theme,” from the 1965 movie Doctor Zhivago.
Concert admission is $10 for adults, with free admission to anyone younger than 18. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Visit the chorus on Facebook or at www.gfccsings.org.
