The Valley Symphony Association (VSA) chorus presents, "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing,'" on Sunday, March 24, at 3 p.m. at the Montrose Pavilion. The VSA is an all-volunteer arts organization in its 48th season. Montrose-based small business Go Big Banners is the concert partner for the spring choral concert.
"Tight harmonies, swingin' rhythms, and lively instruments make up our spring choral concert," director Allyson Connally said. Featuring members of local jazz band Take 5, the chorus will fill the afternoon with songs from Ellington, Gershwin, Goodman, Jobim and more. "Combining classic standards with jazz renditions of the not-so-classic, this show promises to take you back to the cool, free days of jazz, and swing you into the harmonic modern rainbow of modern jazz," Connally said.
"The music we perform is timeless and ageless," VSA board member Priscilla Fry said, "And with ticket prices for students 17 and under at just $5, young people can attend this jazz concert that features this quintessential American art form." Adult tickets are $17 and seniors (60+) are $16. Tickets are $20 at the door.
