Gilbert and Sullivan Concert Performance
The Library is proud to present the Ridgewood Gilbert & Sullivan’s concert version of Iolanthe. Iolanthe is a comic opera concerning a band of immortal fairies who find themselves at odds with the House of Peers. The opera satirizes many aspects of British government and law.
A concert version includes all the musical numbers of the production but the story line is carried by a narrator and the performers are in regular clothing and the props are kept to a minimum.
The program will run for approximately seventy minutes.
December 9 at 2 p.m.
Chorus of the Tappan Zee
The Chorus of the Tappan Zee presents a full and interesting repertoire of music from the 1920s through the 1980s. Included will be a number of inspirational, patriotic and, of course, traditional barbershop songs. Along the way you will hear many songs from your youth, and also learn a bit about this unique American style of four-part harmony.
