From Broadway With Love
Looking for something to do Saturday night that is out of the routine? Want to spend a warm evening of song from the Great White Way? The men of the Cincinnati Men's Chorus have just that fun evening you were looking for thisSaturday, February 12, 2011 at the Below Zero Lounge(1122 Walnut St). We present to you the love songs of the great Broadway musicals! The music not only offers up the tonality of sappy romanticism but also offers the atonality of that love that got away.
It is not too late to order tickets! Go to www.cincinnatimenschorus.org to purchase your tickets for $25 or purchase at the door for $30. We will treat you to an evening of great music and great desserts. Bring your Mr. or Ms. Right with you or if romance has fizzled, Mr. or Ms. Right might be sitting at the next table. We hope to see you for an evening of song and romance!
Monday, Feb 14: Send the perfect gift
Hunting for a unique Valentine's Day gift? How about the gift of music – performed live, at any location you request?
For the eleventh year, members of the Cincinnati Men's Chorus will be performing Serenades in celebration of Valentine's Day. This year, the men will be singing from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 14.
A Serenade recipient receives two songs, plus a flower, a souvenir card and a photograph taken with the singers. A Serenade can be delivered by four tuxedo-clad CMC singers to any location inside the Interstate 275 loop (other locations can be negotiated).
The men will sing in any setting. We do ask you to get permission if we are singing in a workplace, so we don't disrupt work too much – and so we don't get thrown out.
A quartet costs $50 for Valentine's Day. You can pay with cash, credit card or by check, but payment must be made in advance.
The 2011 repertoire includes:
- When I'm 64 (the Beatles class, arranged barbershop style)
- I Love You Truly (the classic ballad, arranged in barbershop style)
- Let Me Call You Sweetheart (another barbershop style arrangement)
- Love Me Tender (Elvis forever)
- I Can't Help Falling In Love With You (Elvis yet again)
- Never My Love (first written for the 1960s group The Association)
- Under the Boardwalk (sung do-wop style)
