“DISNEY & SONGS FROM THE SILVER SCREEN”
By Ralph Paul
September 26, 2016
The show kicked off with the Denver MountainAires chorus singing Zip A Dee Doo Dah, followed by a song recognized around the world as the Disney theme, When You Wish Upon a Star. Afterward, three of the Denver MountainAires’ barbershop quartets entertained the folks. The Grace Notes captured the audience with Give a Little Whistle from the classic Disney movie Pinocchio.Following the Grace Notes, Hit or Miss had the audience laughing until their sides hurt when they came out as four of the seven dwarfs to sing Heigh-Ho from the classic Disney movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The quartets were followed by a first for the Denver MountainAires: Our brand new “Very Large Quartet” or VLQ debuted with Be Our Guest from the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast, after which the UltraSonix entertained with the Theme from Beauty and the Beast and A Whole New World from the Disney movie Aladdin.The full chorus, then, returned to sing You’ve Got a Friend In Me from the movie Toy Story, directed by Chris Kanapackis, which was then followed by the intermission.
During intermission members of the Denver MountainAires entertained the audience in the lobby with the harmony of classic barbershop songs.During the second half of the show our special guests, the Golden Concert Choir, entertained with a host of great songs including an instrumental piano and saxophone duet.
The Denver MountainAires chorus then returned to sing a few more songs, one of which was Who’s Sorry Now, which was ably directed by Jerry Hooper. These were followed by the singing of ‘Til There Was You by Hit or Miss, River of No Return by the Grace Notes and Can You Feel the Love by the UltraSonix.The show ended with the singing of God Bless America by a combined chorus of the Denver MountainAires and the Golden Concert Choir.
It was a great afternoon for our audience that was topped only by the enjoyment the Denver MountainAires experienced in performing for them!
