Good Company Presents Spring Concert “Circle Plus”
Known for lush harmonies and a varied repertoire, the Ames-based women’s choral group Good Company will perform on Sunday, May 7, at 7 p.m. at St. Andrews Church in Ames, Iowa. Tickets are $12 in advance from Good Company members or $15 at the door.
The title of the concert, “Circle Plus,” refers to the Venus symbol for women: a circle over a plus sign. The program consists of works by women composers, from pop performers to traditional writers and arrangers. The evening will include music by Carole King and a medley from the Tony Award-nominated musical “Waitress” by Sara Bareilles; it will also feature works by Libby Larsen, Joan Szymko and Susan Brumfield.
The group invited women representing the diversity of the Ames community to join them for two pieces on the program. “Choral music is about connection and shared expression,” said Steven Hoifeldt, director of Good Company. “The theme of the concert is strength and beauty – and the sheer joy of spring. This will be an inspiring musical experience everyone can enjoy.”
Good Company – an auditioned group of skilled singers who take time from their professional lives to learn and perform challenging music – is the one of few adult women’s choral groups in Iowa. Its programs enable the audience to experience the wide and varied repertoire available for women’s choirs. Members are experienced vocalists who enjoy making music in the company of friends. They are excited to share in the beauty of choral music while continuing to learn and grow as individual artists.
