Audiences will be treated to an array of musical numbersfrom classic Beatles and romantic Gershwin tunes to a jazzy rendition of Java Jive. New Beginnings, presented by the Champlain Echoes of Harmony Inc. will perform at Winooski High School on Saturday June 7. Performance time is: 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 general admission and $10 for seniors and students. This years annual show is a launching pad of sorts as we initiate new beginnings in our chorus, said Gail Kirby show chairwoman and South Burlington resident. Its exciting to debut our new musical director, who brings a wealth of talent and youthful energy. As the Champlain Echoes celebrate their golden anniversary, I am both honored and thrilled to be directing them for the first time, said Musical Director Morgan La Croix Montreal Quebec resident. This is a chorus rich with history and talent and Im sure the community will find our interpretation of their favorite songs unforgettable. The Champlain Echoes were formed in October 1958. The group is a non-profit, educational organization of over 30 women who exist because they want to preserve the barbershop style, one of only two original American music art forms. In 1959 they charted with Harmony Inc. an international organization that offers women of all ages throughout the United States and Canada an opportunity to improve their singing abilities through rehearsals, workshops, conventions and performances. Performing in the show is th feature quartet: The Honeymooners. This upbeat mixed quartet loves to sing doo-wop as well as gospel music.
