Local Music at Cotton Auditorium on Sat night, Oct 27
Friday, October 26th, 2007

The Arts for All Concert is a fundraiser for Arts for All, a non-profit association supporting visual and performing arts. The benefit happens on Saturday night, Oct 27 at Cotton Auditorium in Fort Bragg. You’ll be amazed at the variety of acts! Performers include:

  • Robert Goleman, accompanied by Barbara Faulkner: Robert has a most amazing and beautiful tenor voice. I sang in the chorus last year in a Gilbert & Sullivan musical, and Robert blew everyone away as the male lead! Barbara is an excellent pianist, and she also sings with the AcaBellas.
  • Brass Ensemble, led by Ken Cave
  • The AcaFellas, a male vocal group — I sing with them. We’ll also be joined by a group of ladies, the AcaBellas.
  • Gloriana Musical Theatre: the Gloriana folks will be performing recent and classic show tunes.
  • Fort Bragg High School Jazz Band

Other acts include tribal belly dancing, juggling, magic, traditional West African dances, fire dancers, and others. Tickets are $15 for adults, and less for seniors and children. Come support the local arts!

    The 2008 Mendocino Music Festival shows a concert by the Acafellas, but I can’t find any information about the group. Do you sing just Barbershop? What kind of a concert is it going to be? I’d like to attend (I live in Sea Ranch) if I can find out more about it.

    Regards,

    Dave,

    The Acafellas perform songs from a variety of styles: barbershop, gospel, jazz, doowop, and classical. Here are some of the songs from the upcoming performance: Shenandoah, Georgia on my Mind, Mood Indigo, In the Still of the Night, Blue Moon, Ave Maria (Biebl), O Nata Lux (Lauridsen), Down to the River to Pray, and more. If you like vocal music, I think you’ll enjoy the concert.

    In addition to our standard 9-man lineup, we are also performing some SATB arrangements with a group of ladies, including a great medley of Our Prayer (from Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys) and Because (from the Beatles).

    I’ve been singing with the Acafellas for 4 years, and we’re really looking forward to performing as part of the Music Festival.
