The Noteables and You’ve Got Male Spring Concerts

2018 Spring Concert Announcement

Reserve the weekend of May 4-6 for a spring musical extravaganza with The Noteables and You've Got Male. Presented by Salida Sings, "We're All In This Together" directed by Linda Taylor, celebrates our connection to one another and planet Earth. The songs focus on finding positive ways to approach the challenges before us and remind us of how powerful we can be when we join together to create a kinder more compassionate world. Drummer and percussionist, Oso Blanco, will accompany the choruses. Mandolin, guitar, electric bass, accordion, flute and fiddle compliment some of the songs in this diverse program.

The Noteables will open the show with "Music Lead the Way", an upbeat selection that gets us started on our musical journey. Mandisa's lively "Good Morning" will get you dancing in your seats and the imagery in "There Will Come Soft Rains" will make you yearn for those quiet moments in Nature that renew our spirits. Cole Porter's "Friendship" says it all in the line, "If you ever lose your teeth when you're out to dine, borrow mine." The messages in "Carole King's "You've Got A Friend" and Wailin' Jennys' "One Voice" will stay in your head long after the concert is over.

You've Got Male will sing "A Psalm of Life", urging us to join together and leave footprints on the sands of time. There's "A Place In the Choir" for all God's creatures, even the dopey alligator, the sly old weasel and the turtle dove. "No Man Is An Island" is a beautiful song that expresses the commonality we all share with each other. It segues into "We're The Men", a hilarious declaration that male singers can do more than "ooh" and "ah". We appreciate the quiet moments with each other and the simplicity of beauty in "Make Space For Life To Live" and are inspired by the familiar "The Impossible Dream".

The two choruses will combine to perform 6 songs. The Celtic "Closer To the Flame" encourages us to disregard our fears and take risks. "Uma Familia", with a Latin beat, speaks of tearing down walls by standing tall and being one in the heart even though we live far apart. The heartfelt pleas to open our eyes and our hearts to love people where they are, is the message in "Open Prayer". The choruses step up the beat with the contemporary pop song "Gone, Gone, Gone" and you will feel the warmth of the sunrise in Stephen Schwartz's "Morning Glow". We'll finish up with the sing-along, "Music Changes the World" and, indeed, it does!!
