Press Release: Walla Walla Choral Society “Good Vibrations” concert – May 15, 16
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 18, 2022 – The Walla Walla Choral Society will perform a Good Vibrations concert at Gesa Power House Theatre on Sunday, May 15 at 3:00 p.m. and on Monday, May 16 at 7:00 p.m.
Vibrant, complex, tumultuous, contentious, fabulous, and of course, groovy — all at the same time. That’s the 60’s. The extraordinary variety of cultural tones and nuanced music that was created and performed during this unforgettable decade has had an incalculable impact on our lives. The Beach Boys, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Supremes, The Mamas and the Papas, Stevie Wonder, and so many more artists churned out one extraordinary song after another.
The Walla Walla Choral Society is a non-profit volunteer organization, promotes and performs accessible quality choral music for the Walla Walla Valley and collaborates with other artistic groups, enriching the community’s cultural life. The Choral Society has delivered the gift of song to our community for more than 116 years.
As was the case with many organizations and businesses, the pandemic postponed and cancelled in-person rehearsals and concerts for the Choral Society, including this concert which was originally scheduled for March of 2020. Dr. Jenelle Westerbeck, the new Artistic Director, has been working with the choral group since in-person rehearsals resumed in September.
Reserved seating tickets ($20 adults, $17 youth under 18) are available online at www.phtww.org or by calling the Gesa Power House Theatre box office at 509-529-6500. Based on previous years’ attendance, this event is expected to sell out.
This event is a rental at Gesa Power House Theatre by Walla Walla Choral Society.
Gesa Power House Theatre is currently operating at full capacity, but will continue to follow the most recent guidance from state and county Departments of Health. Current health and safety guidelines at Gesa Power House Theatre are available online or by calling the box office.
