Community chorale brings a touch of Broadway to Sautee

It’s springtime, and music will be in the air at the Sautee Nacoochee Center this weekend.

The Sautee Nacoochee Community Chorale will be presenting the spring concert Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Center Theater at the Sautee Nacoochee Center.

SNCA executive director Kathy Blandin said the group has been hard at work preparing for the series of performances.

"They started rehearsals in early February, meeting once a week as a group to practice," Blandin said. About a month prior to the concerts, the chorale began meeting twice a week to perfect the performance, according to Blandin.

The program will feature songs from Broadway shows like "Camelot," "Showboat," "The King and I," and "Big River."

"The selection of music is fantastic. Its music you’ll recognize, but maybe don’t hear very often," Blandin said.

"You just don’t get to hear chorale music very often. If you have kids, you might hear it at school performances. You just don’t get a lot of chances to see chorale performances," Blandin said.

Although Kathy Blandin is not performing this year, she holds fond memories of past concerts she has lent her voice in.

"I moved here a few years ago, and it was a great way for me to meet people in the community. It’s seldom that we work so closely with a group of people on a single project," Blandin said. "It was very rewarding for me."

The Community Center has 98 seats, and organizers expect full crowds.

The performances are set for 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $14 for non-SNCA members, $8 for members and $4 for kids 6-17. A "simple supper" can be purchased for $6 at 6 p.m. Friday.
