Pines Tones Will Present Concert

BERLIN — On Sunday, June 2, at 3 p.m., the Pine Tones Chorus will present its Spring Concert at the Community Church of Ocean Pines. Admission is $10, payable at the door.

The concert takes its name from the opening song “Music, Music, Music.” Other favorite melodies from the 1950’s will include “Singin’ in the Rain” from Gene Kelly and “Love Me Tender” from Elvis. Fans of stage and screen will recall “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat” from “Guys and Dolls.” Rhythmic beats are featured in “Hernando’s Hideaway.” And the well know songs of the “Music Man Medley” have wide audience appeal.

This spring the chorus is also holding a ticket raffle at the concert. A variety of prizes will be offered such as: restaurant dinners, a golf four-some outing and ladies fashion-wear. Doors will open at 2:15 p.m. allowing extra time for this activity.

“I’m excited about the variety of interesting prizes this raffle is offering,” said Chorus President Dave Holloway.

June Todd is the chorus director and Jenny Anderson is the group’s pianist. Featured musicians will include Kristilyn Friese playing cello, Tom Baione playing string bass and Becca Doughty on drums. Bob Palladino will be playing jazz piano and leading the instrumental ensemble beginning about 10 minutes before the concert.

The Pine Tones Chorus includes 50 singers from Ocean Pines, Ocean City, and nearby areas. The Chorus has been entertaining local audiences in the Ocean Pines and Ocean City areas for more than 30 years. For additional information, phone Dave Holloway 410-641-5672, or June Todd, 410-289-7373.

Funding for chorus activities comes from admissions and the raffle as well as the Worcester County Arts Council, Maryland State Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. These organizations are dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
