The Shoreline Chorale presents “Honoring Family: A Springtime Tribute to Mothers and Fathers.”

“Honoring Family” includes a wide variety of styles, beginning with Stravinsky’s “Ave Maria” and “Pater Noster.” The unexpected “23rd Psalm” by Bobby McFerrin adds a haunting chant-like style. Sets of songs from Sweet Honey in the Rock, and Native American chants add more variety. “You Are the New Day” from the Kings Singers, and “Loves Me Like a Rock” by Paul Simon add the popular element. As extra attractions, the Chorale’s quintet, The Shoreliners, plus friends, will perform a rollicking new arrangement, in costume, of “Get Me to the Church on Time”.

Guest flautist Sarah Stockson, of Cromwell and Westbrook, will perform “Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano” by Claude Bolling. The chorale’s Music Director Rachael Allen also serves as director of choral music at Westbrook High School, and this will be her farewell concert with the Shoreline Chorale. Accompanist Joyce Baxter also serves as Music Director at the Clinton Congregational Church.

Since its founding in 1982 by the Shoreline Arts Alliance, The Shoreline Chorale has presented choral arts in a variety of genres for the enjoyment of concert attendees and singers alike.
