BULLHEAD CITY – As temperatures gradually cool in the Tri-State area, the Mohave High School auditorium will heat up with the first choir concert of the school year.  The five groups that make up Mohave’s choirs will perform “Music for an Autumn Evening” on Tuesday, October 9 at 7 p.m.

The eclectic program features rock, patriotic, madrigal, spiritual, rhythm and blues, contemporary and sacred music, as well as show tunes.  It is designed to have something for everyone, according to the choir’s director.

English madrigals, rock spirituals and mournful Civil War and World War One messages prior to Veterans Day are at one end of the spectrum.  At the other: music from the Stray Cats, and a rousing four song selection from the Broadway and film hit musical “Hairspray.”

“Almost like autumn is a potpourri of colors and smells, we want this concert to be a delightful mix of sights and sounds for everyone,” said Cameron Pruett, Mohave’s choir and vocal music teacher and director.  “It will also feature several student-lead projects including accompanists, stage technicians and student-designed choreography.”

Mohave’s award-winning choir department includes the Concert Choir, Mystic Rhythm, Rhapsody, Soul Faze and Treble Glee.

Tickets are $5 and available at the door before the show; children under 12 are free.
