Nova Singers will kick off their 27th Season with their third “Out of the Ordinary Concert: Remembering Brian Nelson” on Sunday, June 10 at 4:00 p.m. at First Lutheran Church, 1600-20th Street, Rock Island, Illinois. Current members, alumni, and friends of Brian Nelson will perform everything from classical to gospel to Shakespeare, from sing-alongs to limericks. Brian Nelson began his career with Nova Singers in their first season, 1986-87.
Our concert represents the eclectic musical taste of Brian Nelson. The audience will enjoy hearing songs from musicals such as “If I Were a Rich Man”, “Fugue for Tinhorns”, “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning”, “If Ever I Would Leave You” and “On the Good Ship Lollipop”. The Prenzi Players will present a short scene in which Brian Nelson played the role of Falstaff. Three magnificent tenors will lead us in a few Kingston trio tunes. “Rock Island Line” will be presented in story and song. Classical cello and vocal pieces will round out the program. And, yes, there will be a limerick contest. The Nova Singers will be performing a piece from their latest Christmas CD as well as “Amazing Grace/ Promised Land” and the Moses Hogan favorite, “God’s Gonna Set This World on Fire”.
This special event is a fund-raiser that will support the Nova Singers’ 27th Season.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students are free. Tickets will be available
