Conway Men’s Chorus’s invites community to free Spring Pops Concert on May 7

On Tuesday, May 7, the Conway Men’s Chorus will present its annual Spring Pops Concert at 7 p.m. in Reynolds Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas. Admission and parking are free to the public, and doors open at 6:30 p.m. 

Lasting approximately one hour, the concert is presented as the chorus’ gift to the community. It will feature a variety of music from sacred to contemporary and pop to patriotic, including the beautiful hymn “Be Still My Soul,” the inspirational “Cornerstone,” an upbeat fun African-style song “Cover Me With the Night,” the popular Frank Sinatra hit “Fly Me to the Moon,” the much-beloved gospel hymn “I’ll Fly Away,” and the Bette Midler pop song “The Rose,” just to name a few. 

Before the men perform, there will be a special performance by Central Arkansas Chamber Wind Ensemble. 

This year marks 25 years of singing. In that time, the chorus has sung more than 250 different songs during 48 concerts by more than 350 men from the Central Arkansas area. With no audition requirement, chorus members range from high school age into their 80s with a wide range of musical abilities and knowledge, from all walks of life, all beliefs, and various fields of past and present employment. Simply, they are men who love to sing in various church choirs and area chorus ensembles and want to give the joy of music to their community. 

This Spring, the 65-plus member Conway Men’s Chorus continues to present that gift of song—free of charge, twice a year—to fulfill the overall mission of the Conway Men’s Chorus: to provide the Conway area with the best in men’s choral music expertly performed under skilled leadership and direction, and to help enrich lives in our community by demonstrating and fostering a love of music.
