Under the direction of Dr. David Lingle, this fine choral society will sing selections by John Gardner, Lloyd Pfautsch, Irving Berlin, and Tchaikovsky among others. Centering on the theme, “A Day for Dancing” and rejoicing in the spirit of the season, the group will perform music old and new, frolicking and tender, joyous and reverent.
WinterSing 2006 includes performances of “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day,” “Waltz of the Flowers,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and a surprise rendition of the “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies” from “The Nutcracker Suite.”
The Telluride Choral Society consists of the Choristers (a children’s group), Omni Voce (a teen choir), Emanon (a girls’ ensemble), and the full Chorale. The Ridgway concert will also include a cameo performance by another group, Men Without Rhythm.
A non-profit organization, TCS is now celebrating its 13 th season. Its mission is to enrich and expand the cultural musical experience of singers and audiences within the Telluride region and beyond through performances and musical activities.
