Rangeley Chorus offering ‘Dancing in the Street’


RANGELEY — Rangeley Community Chorus will present “Dancing in the Street,” a concert filled with dance-inspired songs, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19, at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 2614 Main St.

The 30-member chorus will perform songs that feature the word dance in the lyrics, or that were written for dancing. The chorus is directed by Sue Downes-Borko.

Accompanying the chorus with bass and percussion will be Derek Wendelken.

In addition to the 10 pieces sung by the chorus, there will be a special three-movement trio of instrumental musicians playing from Claude Bolling’s “Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano.” Performing will be Sue Downes-Borko on flute, Barbara Ulman on piano and Mike Schrader on bass.

Other highlights of the concert will include a poetry reading about dance by Jud Pealer, and a duet of “Shall We Dance?” featuring Linda Wendelken and Don Schuman.

Tickets are $12 and can be purchased in advance at the Chamber of Commerce or at the door the night of the concert.

The chorus is sponsored by the Rangeley Friends of the Arts, a nonprofit organization. For more information go to www.rangeleyarts.org, or call Pam Ellis at 864-5000.
