Director Terry Logan said finding choral music for ’60s pieces was challenging, so she arranged the music for half of the show.

“Guest artist Gus Hansen will be performing and we will have a special appearance from the Communettes singing One Fine Day by Carole King a la The Supremes,” said Logan.

An award winning conductor, Logan, will makes the music live again with accompanist Marjorie Close, Molly Boyd on 12-string and Armstrong bass player Todd York.

The Community Singers are a multi generational choir who welcome anyone who loves to sing to join them in the fall.
