July 29, 2018 – “A Cole Porter Celebration”
Cole Porter’s brilliant talent brought to musical theater what many believed were the cleverest, funniest and most romantic songs every written. The Prescott Pops Symphony under the baton of Choral Director, Darrell Rowader, along with the Prescott Pops Chorus will dazzle you with a fantastic array of Cole Porter’s many delightful creations. “You’re The Top,” “Too Darn Hot, “I Get A Kick Out Of You”, “All Of You” are just a few of the pieces guaranteed to make you smile. Many of the songs in this program harken back to popular recordings of Porter’s music by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, a cross of talents and styles that spanned genres and yet earned universal admiration and appreciation. You can expect an incredible performance from musicians and singers alike, and an afternoon of superior entertainment.
