Spring concert features music for all generations
LULING/DESTREHAN – The Community Chorus of the River Parishes will hold their “Singing into Spring” concert on Friday, May 9 at 7 p.m. at R.K. Smith Middle School in Luling and at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 10 a St. Charles Borromeo in Destrehan.

The concert will feature “Pop Music Through the Years” and is under the direction of Brian Martinez with accompanist Janet Broussard.

Chorus manager Virginia Riecke said the concert will offer music for all generations.

“We will be singing popular songs from the Big Band era all the way up Kelly Clarkson. We are spanning the decades from the 1940s all the way to the present time,” she said.

The Community Chorus of the River Parishes was first established in 2000 and is now entering its 14th year.

The chorus is made up of numerous citizens from across the River Parishes who are all united by their love of singing.

“There are some singers who are trained, but most are just people who love to sing,” Riecke said. “We have ages ranging from high school students all the way up to people in their 80s. We just love to sing.”

The West Bank concert will take place at R.K. Smith Middle School located at 281 Judge Edward Dufresne Parkway in Luling.

The East Bank concert will take place at St. Charles Borromeo located at 13396 River Road in Destrehan.
