MOHAVE HIGH CHOIRS PERFORMING RIVER-THEMED SMALL GROUP CONCERT THURSDAY NIGHT

BULLHEAD CITY – Life along the Colorado River has changed for most during the past year.  Music students at Mohave High School will show this in a unique river-themed concert March 4, singing primarily small groups and ensembles rather than in large, full choirs.

The Thursday night concert begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Mohave High auditorium.  Tickets are $3 per person.   Seating will be socially-distanced and limited to 250 on a first-come, first-admitted basis.  Masks are required for audience members.

Among the “river songs” on the program is the hymn “Down to the River to Pray,” Carly Simon’s Academy Award-winning hit “Let the River Run” from the film “Working Girl,” the early 1800s folk song “Oh Shenandoah,” and the pre-Civil War folk song “A Poor Wayfaring Stranger,” popularized in the 20th Century by Burl Ives, Johnny Cash and Emmy Lou Harris.

Students working in small groups will also have their own selections, which have not yet been finalized. Cameron Pruett, Mohave’s choir director and vocal music teacher, said this week’s concert format was designed to be “more open and doable for students who are participating in the virtual classroom but does not require the time and effort of a ‘virtual choir.’”

He added that in-person students will have the opportunity to work together in groups of singers that might not otherwise be possible.
