‘Best of Big Band’ to feature jazz ensemble


The Canyon Lake Choraleers spring concert, “Best of Big Band,” will feature well-known songs from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s by composers George Gershwin, Richard Rogers, Glen Miller, Irving Berlin and others. The song list includes “Blue Skies,” “Embraceable You,” “Isn’t It Romantic,” “It Had to Be You,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Moonlight Serenade” and “Java Jive,” to name a few.

In addition to Canyon Lake’s resident pianist Lynda Salina, 16 members of the Elsinore High School advanced jazz ensemble will accompany the chorus, as well as serenade guests with a few of their own favorites like “Autumn Leaves,” “Misty” and “In the Mood.”

The Choraleers invite the community to join them for this nostalgic concert on Sunday, May 20, at 3 p.m. in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge. General Admission tickets are $15; VIP tickets are $20. Tickets can be purchased at the POA office, brownpapertickets.com and from any Choraleers member.

The no-host bar will feature a special themed drink. An opportunity drawing will be held during intermission.
