Santa Monica, California – Celebrate summer with the return of the Lyric Chorus Singing in the Summer on Thursday, May 28, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium at the Santa Monica Public Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd. The twenty plus member chorus put their audience in a summer mood with a performance of seasonal songs and Broadway tunes.
Founded in the 1940s as the Santa Monica Lyric Chorus, the group became the Lyric Chorus of SMC Emeritus College when the Emeritus College was founded in the 1970s. Chorus members sing in three-part harmony under the direction of Bill Elliott, who has been the chorus’ director since 1986. Assistant director and pianist Tom Gerhold (not pictured) has accompanied the Lyric Chorus for over twenty years. This Summer Sing performance is sure to be a big hit for all ages.
