AN AMERICAN high school choir and orchestra based in Kansas City has will join forces with the Church of the Servant Choir from Oklahoma City to perform a free concert at St Andrew's Church, Westland Row, on Wednesday, June 12.

The Shawnee Mission North School Choir was established in 1922 near the site of a Native American mission school located on the site where the Santa Fe Trail passed through Shawnee tribal lands. This former rural area is now a suburb of Kansas City and today the Shawnee Mission North High School serves a diverse group of about 2,000 students with a strong emphasis on fine arts.

There will be 40 students from the Shawnee Mission North School Choir, aged 15-18, performing at St Andrew’s this Wednesday. The programme includes over 20 pieces of music and the choirs, which have a total of 70 singers, will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra of 10 musicians.

Titled ‘An American Celebration of Music’, the repertoire includes ‘Get me to the Church on Time’ from the musical ‘My Fair Lady’; ‘Remember Me’ from the Disney movie ‘Coco’; and John Denver's famous song, ‘Take me Home, Country Roads’.

Other songs include music from the West End hit, ‘Les Misérables’ -  ‘I Dreamed a Dream’, ‘Master of the House’, ‘At the End of the Day’, ‘Castle on a Cloud’, ‘On My Own’, ‘Empty Chairs at Empty Tables’ and ‘Do you Hear the People Sing’. It will also include a selection of hymns including ‘Revelation Song’ and ‘For the Beauty of the Earth’, plus the famous traditional southern folk song, ‘Down to the River to Pray’.

The concert at St Andrew's Church is free but you must reserve your tickets in advance by registering online at bookeventsireland.com
