The Wimberley  Community Chorus Spring Concert for 2004 was too good to miss! Since early January the chorus rehearsed every Monday evening to bring this marvelous musical event to Central Texans in Wimberley and the surrounding area.

Included in the concert were pieces like "Lida Rose" from the barbershop quartet in "Music Man," "No Business Like Show Business" from "Annie Oakley" and, from "Show Boat," a choral montage featuring "Make Believe," "Why Do I love You?" and "Old Man River." Soprano Amber Martin will sing "Can't Help Lovin That Man of Mine" from "Porgy and Bess." "My Fair Lady" provides the music for "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" and "I Could Have Danced All Night." There are even more show tunes to enjoy, and the concert closed with George M. Cohan's famous "Finale" piece, "Give My Regards to Broadway" and "Climb Every Mountain" from "The Sound of Music."

This concert was held in the new sanctuary of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church at 6000 RR 3237, six miles east of Wimberley Square. Three performances were scheduled: Friday, April 2 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 4 at 3:00 p.m. Admission was free!
