The 85-voice Morris Choral Society celebrates the start of spring. Under the direction of Wayne Walters, the chorus will perform popular selections from Broadway and Tin Pan Alley, including favorites by George Gershwin, selections from Phantom of the Opera, Shrek and more.
Joining the Chorus will be Express Male, a sextet of tenors, baritones and basses. The members of the group are John Collins of Raritan, Bud Leppard of Morristown, Chip Wood of Basking Ridge, Wayne Walters of Parsippany, Rob Walters of Long Valley and Nicholas Schumacher of Randolph. Convent Station’s Ken Rapp will be the piano accompanist.
“We have had a challenging winter and the chorus is looking forward to welcoming spring” said Mr. Walters. “In addition to tunes from Broadway, we will intersperse some well-known and not so well-known songs for an afternoon of pure joy.”
The Morris Choral Society has been a mainstay in North Jersey for more than 40 years and has performed alongside many famous musicians including jazz legend Dave Brubeck and beloved singer Judy Collins. The award-winning chorus has been recognized by Morris Arts as an Outstanding Arts Organization and founder and music director Wayne Walters has received the prestigious Outstanding Professional in the Arts Award. In addition to performing for enthusiastic audiences in New Jersey, the chorus has toured England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Italy, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
These performances have been made possible in part by Morris Arts through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Secretary of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
