My Song in the Night - Fall Concert on October 30th

The Evanston Civic Chorus is excited for the upcoming fall concert with the Evanston Civic Orchestra titled, My Song in the Night.

The men's chorus will sing several songs in their debut performance under the direction of ECC co-director Nathan Baxter:
  • Brother's Sing On!
  • Coney Island Baby/We All Fall medley
  • We May Not Be Vampires (But We're Still Men)
The women's chorus, led by ECC co-director Crystal Roskelley-Delgado, has prepared three songs:
  • Scarborough Fair
  • Long time Traveller  
  • Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit
The combined chorus will sing a couple of songs that lean toward Halloween, including "Jabberwocky," a fun musical setting of Lewis Carroll's fantastical poem.

Several of the songs speak of longing, home, and faith.  In these presentations, the chorus is looking forward to Thanksgiving.  These include "Goin' Home," and "My Shepherd Will Supply My Need."  The finale song, and title song of the concert, will be combined with the orchestra - "My Song in the Night."

The concert is free, families are welcome, and refreshments will be served!
