Valentine's Day provided the occasion for a special musical performance by Mary Ann Rathburn and Marty Rathburn for the Friends of the Cedaredge Library, and the performance had a very special surprise ending.
The Rathburn's performed sentimental selections for the occasion from the 1940s and 50s by popular composers Johnny Mercer, Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein, and George Gershwin.
The numbers performed included "Unforgettable," "On the Street Where You Live," "I'll Never Smile Again," "Love Walked In," and others, including a sing-along of "When You Wish Upon a Star."
The performance took place at the library preceding the Friends regular meeting. At the ending there was a surprise appearance by four members of the Black Canyon Barbershop Chorus who had been invited to present a Valentine's Day concert for Rathburn. She is also the music director for the chorus.
The quartet, called Rocky Road, is comprised of Bill Snyer, Tim Davis, Rod Ragsdale and Vern Dockter.
The Black Canyon Barbershop Chorus is giving its annual show June 15 at the Montrose Pavilion. Tickets for the annual show are available from chorus members.blog comments powered by Disqus
