Holland Performing Arts Center for the First Time
“C’mon, Get Happy!” to be held 7 p.m. on June 27
— The River City Mixed Chorus presents “C’mon, Get Happy!”, a concert celebrating the golden age of Broadway and popular songwriters like Berlin, Gershwin, and Porter. The performance will be held at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 27, at the Holland Performing Arts Center, located at 13th and Douglas streets in Omaha. Reserved seating starts at $20 and can be purchased through TicketOmaha.comor by calling the Ticket Omaha box office at 402-345-0606.
Along with Harold Arlen’s concert title piece, musical selections include Sweet Charity’s “The Rhythm of Life,” as well as “The Nearness of You” by Hoagy Carmichael and “Anything Goes” from the Cole Porter musical of the same name. Additional pieces, from Broadway or popular collections, were specifically selected for their messages of inclusion, hope and empowerment.
The River City Mixed Chorus is in its 31st season and includes 100 singers. RCMC is one of the longest-running gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and ally (GLBTA) mixed choruses in the United States and is under the direction of Dr. A. Barron Breland. This will be the first time RCMC has performed at the Holland Performing Arts Center.
“The River City Mixed Chorus is a long-established fixture in the local LGBT community,” said Breland. “We are especially excited to bring Omaha’s favorite choir to Omaha’s premier concert venue, the Holland Performing Arts Center. It will be a thrill for our record-number of singers and will help introduce us—and our message of inclusion and acceptance—to a broader audience.”
