The Coastal Singers are a group of community members who have been singing together for many years. They began rehearsing for this show in January but missed a few sessions because of extreme storm conditions. This season there are some new singers, some returning, and some ever-faithful singers. They will be joined by special guests, In the Mix, an a cappella women’s group from Mendocino.
The Spring selection of music is pleasantly eclectic. From an old English love ballad, “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme” to “How Deep is Your Love” by the Bee Gees , there will be something to surely engage everyone in the audience. An Irving Berlin Medley including “Steppin’ Out with My Baby ” promises to keep the audience on the edges of their seats. The Coastellettes, a trio comprised of Mimi Dallas, Pat Wilson and Christina Chapman, will sing two love songs from the 1950’s: “Sincerely” and “Unchained Melody”. A tribute to mothers will be sung by the chorus, “You Raise Me Up.” Please consider bringing a loved one to the concert to celebrate Mother’s Day.
In the Mix is a women’s a cappella sextet. Singing in close harmony, they bring their signature sound to popular songs from the 1920’s to the present day. Based in Fort Bragg, In the Mix has performed together since January 2009 in a variety of venues up and down the Mendocino coast.
Christina Chapman as director and Don Krieger as accompanist have formed quite a duo to help direct and guide the chorus. With Don accomplished muscianship and Christina’s willingness to learn, together they have been able to keep the community humming weekly.
