Queen Anne’s Chorale spring concert canceled

Queen Anne's Chorale

The Queen Anne’s Chorale rehearses.

WYE MILLS — In an effort to be proactive, the Board of Directors for the Queen Anne’s Chorale back in early March had rescheduled the April 18 concert to June 27. With the status of gatherings still in doubt, the Board took the further step recently to cancel the concert and reschedule the program for April 17, 2021.

The program will be identical and be performed on the main stage at the Todd Performing Arts Center on the campus of Chesapeake College in Wye Mills.

The evening will come alive with popular musical selections “From Stage and Screen.” Queen Anne’s Chorale will be performing songs from “Lion King,” “La La Land,” “Les Miserables,” “Aladdin,” along with many other songs from shows you know by heart. You will be tapping your feet and humming along as you enjoy your musical evening.

Fortunately, the Chorale will still feature soloist Thomas Beard. Considered a Lyric-Dramatic-Baritone, Beard studied under the direction of Placido Domingo while part of the National Opera in Washington, D.C. He has also performed in operas in Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Jacksonville as well as touring oversees in Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.

A Select Ensemble and soloists will provide extra music to make the audience smile. The audience will also be asked to sing along on several pieces. A punch and cookie reception will follow the performances.

The Board would also like to thank the Chorale’s numerous supporters. Those that have purchased advertising in the program will be printed in the Fall Program for the Dec. 5 concert. Also, they would like to thank the corporate sponsors who continue to support the Chorale’s mission, such as Service Today, Acts Retirement-Life/Heron Point, Koons Toyota Easton, Chesapeake Hearing Centers, Soistman Family Dentistry, Liberty Technical Services and Shore Bancshares.

Also, mark your calendars for the Choral’s 2020/2021 season. The Holiday Concert will be Dec. 5 and will transport you back in time for a nostalgic celebration. Tickets are $20 for adults with children through high school admitted free. For more information, go to or call 443-262-8146.

Queen Anne’s Chorale is supported in part through grants from the United Way of Queen Anne’s County, the Queen Anne’s County Centre for the Arts and the Maryland State Arts Council.
