Lewis and Clark choruses will present an (Anti) Valentine's Concert for all Feb. 10
An (Anti) Valentine's Concert will be held at Lewis and Clark College to allow people to celebrate or curse Valentine's Day. This tongue-in-cheek concert features the college's choirs, a cappella groups and community choral. It will be held Feb. 10 in Evans Hall beginning at 8 p.m. Admission is free.
'The concert is a fun twist on what one might expect at Valentine's, songs all about the joys of love. This concert sort of turns that idea on its ear,' said Margaret Green, director of the women's choir. The women's choir, for instance has programmed the piece 'Mashed Potato/Love Song' by Paul McCartney where the singer must choose between a third helping of mashed potatoes and the person he or she loves. People will need to come to the concert to see how that one turns out.
'We are also singing 'I Can't Make You Love Me,' made famous by Bonnie Raitt and most recently the singer Adele. Finally, a wonderful arrangement of the Motown hit 'One Fine Day.''
The Community Chorale, which includes staff, students and other members of the Lewis and Clark community, will sing and the Cappella Nova group will sing'I Love and I Hate.'
