Celebrate America’s 237th birthday with a free July 4th concert, compliments of the Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale and The Jamboree Band on Thursday, July 4, at 2 p.m. in the Veteran’s Memorial Building on Mission Drive in Solvang.
The Chorale’s “Valley Jamboree,” directed by Chris Bowman, is sure to touch your heart and leave you humming a favorite American tune. The concert repertoire includes something for everyone who loves 100% made-in-America music. Expect to tap your feet to songs such as the Valley’s “Route 246” and the traditional “Buffalo Gals,” melodic medleys such as “Appalachian Celebration,” and patriotic songs including, “God Bless America” and a rousing George M. Cohan medley. The Jamboree Band with Sally Barr on fiddle, Helen Townsend on piano, Chris Judge on guitar, Brendan Statom on bass, and Rex Harte on drums, will accompany the Chorale and WOW! the audience with some of their favorites as well.
The concert is free and one of several events that the Chorale brings to the community annually. Local residents and area visitors are encouraged to come early, “snag” a seat and enjoy a unique musical celebration, compliments of the Chorale.
The Chorale’s concert is part of an all- day Valley celebration. The Chorale will have a musical float in the 11 a.m. parade. The parade will be followed by a barbecue in Solvang Park, both events sponsored by Solvang Rotary. More food, booths and fireworks at the Santa Ines Mission will follow the Chorale’s performance, sponsored by the Santa Ynez Valley Rotary Club.
The Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale is a member-supported, non-profit organization that performs diverse chorale music accompanied by professional musicians appropriate to the concert theme.
