Concert Association elects new officers, touts season
Special to The Daily Review
The board of Community Concert Association of Morgan City recently elected a new president, due to the death of longtime President Marlene Hendrix.
By unanimous vote, Floyd Cloutier is the new president. Doylene R. Porter was elected first vice president, and Harry Porter was elected second vice president. Linda Cooke will serve as secretary, and Terri DiMatteo will continue as treasurer.
Porter also gave a report on the status of the association’s new website.
“Community Concert Association is currently linked to the city’s website,” he stated, “but our new website should be ready in a short time, as details are worked out.”
The current subscription drive is continuing with new and gift subscriptions, as well as renewals, being accepted. The 2012-13 concert series is again live at the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium Theatre and features six outstanding concert groups.
Opening the season is the fascinating Walker Family as the “Redhead Express,” bringing their American Roots Show to town Friday, Sept. 21. Next, Friday, Oct. 29 is “Tap, the Show,” featuring eight award-winning dancers and two singers, wrapped in dazzling costumes and backed by a soaring orchestral score. Exploring the traditional boundaries of classical music and bent on making their own rules, “A Far Cry of Boston” charms all Thursday, Nov. 15.
Authentically reproducing the look, choreography, style and sound made famous, the Masters of Motown preserve the integrity of the entire Motown experience in their performance Tuesday, Jan. 15. Transcending time, Matthew and Gunner Nelson, sons of Rick Nelson, explore fresh creative territory and manage to work some Rick Nelson classics into their set on Monday, March 4.
Closing the season out is “4 2 Five,” Tuesday, May 7. With only five voices they re-create an entire instrumental band and take you on a real musical journey.
