Fallbrook Music Society opens season with Cinemagic

FALLBROOK – Continuing its successful new Classical Sundays format, Fallbrook Music Society begins its 39th Annual Concert Season on Sunday, Aug. 28 with its most unusual partner yet, the Fallbrook Chorale!

Under the direction of Denny Lang, the Fallbrook Chorale brings over 30 voices to the Fallbrook Public Library for a special concert that features hit songs from movie favorites spanning generations.

This well-crafted program has something for everyone including a medley of Disney movie hits from Lion King, The Jungle Book and the Wizard of Oz, to hits from My Fair Lady, Man of La Mancha and Grease.

“Fallbrook Music Society has spent the last 12 months working hard to build new audiences and reach music lovers of all genres. I am especially thrilled to partner with the Fallbrook Chorale to open our season as I know they have a fantastic program planned for us," said library executive director Ann Murray.

There will be program preview at 2:30 p.m. with the concert starting at 3 p.m. The performance is free and open to the general public. No tickets are required.

In command since the fall of 2013, director Lang has ushered in a new era at the Fallbrook Chorale. A graduate from USC with a bachelor of music degree, with graduate work in chorale conducting at USC, Occidental College and UCLA, Lang knows his way around music. As an undergrad, he received the City of Los Angeles 'Outstanding Young Artist of the Year' award as a bass soloist, leading performances in many USC and southern California community productions, light opera musicals, and the Sacramento 'Music Circus Theater.'

With experience conducting both sacred and secular choral music, his choirs regularly present community concerts of both light/pops and serious/major works with orchestra. The Aug. 28 program, entitled "Cinemagic," covers multiple music styles and covers the gamut of Broadway and Hollywood classics. The concert will be held at the Fallbrook Public Library, 124 S. Mission Rd. More information is available at www.FallbrookMusicSociety.org or (760) 451-8644.
