The concert will kick off with “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” arranged by Mark Hayes. Accompanist Ann Moore will display her keyboard artistry in a solo performance of “American Declaration,” and Chorale soprano Leslie Garman will solo on “My Man’s Gone Now” from “Porgy and Bess.” “This concert represents a musical salute to everything good in this land,” Chorale director Allan Petker said. “We’ll do a variety of old favorites along with some very dramatic and emotional pieces. In other words, we’ll have fun with familiar pieces, while maintaining a dignified perspective on the sacrifices that made this country great.” One selection reminiscent of America’s revolutionary spirit 230 years ago will be the performance of Randall Thompson’s “The Testament of Freedom,” four selected writings of Thomas Jefferson. And Ron Kean’s “American Mass” weaves American hymns and spirituals into a traditional missa brevis (short mass). The Chorale also will present the premiere performance of a new medley of Irving Berlin tunes arranged by Santa Clarita resident Jan Sanborn. Sanborn has woven together three Berlin favorites – “Blue Skies,” “It’s a Lovely Day Today” and “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” – into one arrangement. The spring season will be celebrated with Aaron Copland’s “Stomp Your Foot,” “The Promise of Living,” and “Simple Gifts,” arranged by David L. Brunner. Several folk songs and spirituals will be featured, including “Camptown Races” and “Witness,” arranged by Jack Halloran; “Going Over Home,” arranged by Glenn H. Finney; and “The Battle of Jericho,” arranged by Moses Hogan. The Chorale will also perform Stephen Foster’s toe-tapping “Some Folks Do,” arranged by Mark Hayes. The men will present a David Dickau arrangement of “America the Beautiful,” and the women will present Robert Greenlee’s folk song, “Johnny Has Gone for A Soldier,” in addition to Copland’s “The Horses.” Performances of “Stand Up and Cheer!” are scheduled for 7 p.m. June 3 and 3:30 p.m. June 4 at Valencia United Methodist Church, 25718 McBean Parkway, Valencia. Tickets are $19 for general admission and $14 for seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased at The Cobblestone Cottage, 24335 Magic Mountain Parkway, Valencia; at Cookbooks Plus, 24339 San Fernando Road, Newhall; and at Rooms and Blooms, 24264 Valencia Blvd, Valencia.
