Jazz and Beyond – Not your Ordinary Choir
Presenting an epic Daft Punk medley and Rihanna reimagined, Ecco and Ancora, the top performing choirs of the award winning Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir, will present its highly regarded Jazz and Beyond concert May 20 at 8:00pm at the Marsh Arts Center in Berkeley.
Cutting edge choral music, a cappella jams, and nightclub solos set the mood of the evening, as sung by Ecco’s 40 voice mixed choir under the direction of popular conductor Clifton Massey.
The women’s ensemble, Ancora, captures the sounds and rhythms of Mexico City in A lo Chilango, composed by rising star composer Diana Syrse. Under the direction of conductor Sue Bohlin, Ancora will also perform the lush Vocal Fantasy by local composer Anne Hege, and will channel songwriting wunderkind Lorde in a cover of Royals.
Rounding out the evening will be classic jazz and top 40 solos presented by talented teen stars of tomorrow from both choirs. The songs will be familiar but new arrangements will surely surprise and delight.
