Essex residents perform in the Green Mountain Chorus’ Annual Show
Four high school students and several adult singers from Essex will perform in the Green Mountain Chorus’ Annual Show, “The Road Less Traveled,” this weekend at Essex High School.
Inspired by Frost’s collection of poems, the Green Mountain Chorus’s version of “The Road Less Traveled” is a musical journey around the nation featuring some favorite songs, including “Memphis Blues,” “Home on the Range,” “Shenandoah” and “King of the Road.” Besides the big sound afforded by the nearly 30 singers in the chorus portion, there will be four different barbershop quartets performing in the more traditional four-person configuration.
Members of Essex High School’s 4/5 Quartet — student leader Adam Petrucci, Zach Wade, Isaac Lee, Colin Seiler and Tommy Bergeron will perform during the evening show as special guests.
Essex residents Dan Venditti, David Foster, Al McGuire, Bruce Smith and Denis Brochu all sing as part of the chorus ensemble. David Foster sings in the breakout quartet, Village Green, along with Dave Merrill of Burlington, Bob Zelazo of St. Albans and Dick Labrecque of South Burlington. Chorus Quartets Bullseye, Mansfield 4 and High Voltage, each add their own four-part singing to the mix.
The inimitable UVM Top Cats and St. Mike’s dynamic Mike Check will round out the entertainment with their special sounds.
“The Road Less Traveled” will be held Saturday, April 18 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. At Essex High School, 2 Educational Drive, Essex Junction. Visit www.GreenMountainChorus.com or call 505-9595 or 864-5439 for special advanced ticket sales pricing and additional information.
