The St. Augustine Community Chorus, under the direction of Mike Sanflippo, will present, “From Stage to Screen: Opera Choruses, Broadway Fare & Film Music,” as part of its 2017-2018 concert season, on March 10 at 7:30 p.m. and March 11 at 3 p.m. The performances will be held at Ancient City Baptist Church, located at 27 Sevilla St. in St. Augustine.
This year, the annual Pops Concert, featuring the Pops Band's piano, bass, drums, guitar and reeds, will include familiar tunes mixed with new music. The event will feature a sample of opera choruses, music made famous on both the Broadway stage and the big screen, and a finale from an operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan.
Visitors will hear selections from "Oklahoma," "Sound of Music," "Wicked" and "Into the Woods," along with Disney tunes from years of live-action and animated films. Additionally, the St. Augustine Youth Chorus will be joining the Community Chorus to sing a medley of songs from the Disney show, "Mary Poppins." There will also be a few surprises to end the program.
