WILTON, Conn. - The Wilton Singers will present “Hellos & Goodbyes” at the WEPCO Complex, 48 New Canaan Road, in a concert on Friday, May 9.
The program’s musical focus echoes the evening’s theme, featuring diverse audience favorites, including show tunes such as “Getting to Know You” from the "King & I" and “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from "Hairspray" to contemporary selections such as Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and the Beatles’ “Hello Goodbye.” From Africa to Italy and across the years, the lyrics of each selection take the audience on a journey from beginnings to endings that lead to new beginnings.
The Wilton Singers perform under the direction of Patrick Taylor. This will be Mr. Taylor’s final turn at conducting the Wilton Singers in concert.
“We love all the positive feedback we get from our audience and the way they continue to pack the house," said Jean Caffrey, president of the Wilton Singers. "The Wilton Singers concerts have been sold-out events for several years, so please order your tickets early.”
Tickets for "Hellos & Goodbyes" can be purchased online at wiltonsingers.com. Tickets are $30 per person.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert begins at 8 p.m. Bring your own dinner and beverages.
