Modern Men: Coachella Valley Men’s Chorus Presents–The Gift of Love at the Palm Springs Cultural Center Camelot Theatre
In a resounding statement of love and affirmation, Modern Men – Coachella Valley Men’s Chorus, under the Artistic Direction of Dr. Stan Hill– presents The Gift of Love as their 2019 Holiday musical offering. Maintaining the chorus’ high performance standards, the men will present some of the world’s most beautiful music, all themed around the wonders of love.
An opening fanfare announces the theme with Christmas Comes Again and moves into the sublime There Shall a Star from Jacob Come Forth from Christus, Opus 97, by Felix Mendelssohn. The concert repertoire then moves through one divine melody after another with music by Robert Seeley, Anne Albritton, Healey Willan, Franz Gruber, Benjamin Britten and many more. You will leave the Palm Springs Cultural Center (Camelot Theaters) filled with unforgettable melodies that will inspire your Holiday Season.
And, of course, there will be some fun and delight – moments of pure silliness and imagination that characterize Modern Men concerts and keep you coming back for more.
But the men have saved the best for last – with two splendid selections: Flight Song and If Music Be the Food of Love (Sing On!) – both premiere presentations in the Coachella Valley.
Whether in the delicious resonance of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church, or our new home, Palm Springs Cultural Center (Camelot Theatre), this unique and talented chorus of dedicated men, will extoll the wonders of love through the language of magnificent music.
