Singers on the Grand at the Grand Ledge Opera House

It‘s “All About That Music!” for the Singers on the Grand this weekend! They will perform their 19th concert at the Grand Ledge Opera House, 121 S. Bridge St., on Saturday, November 5 at 6:30 PM and Sunday, November 6 at 3:00 PM.

Under the direction of Libby Brandon and Katy Brandon McDonough, the collaborative ensemble provides a wide array of music performed as solos, duets, small groups, and the close harmonies of the ten-vocalist chorus accompanied by the talented six-piece Grand Band.

Classic pop, jazz, and Broadway standards include: choral medleys from “Oliver,“ “Little Shop of Horrors,” and “Swingin’ with the Gershwins;” smaller groups and solos: “All That Jazz,” “All The Things You Are,” “The Girl from Impanema,” “Ain‘t Misbehavin‘,” Billy Joel’s “The Longest Time,” and favorite “Lida Rose“/“Will I Ever Tell You.” Also, as is their tradition, they will perform two sacred pieces, “Shall We Gather at The River,” and “Witness.”

The Singers on the Grand ensemble vocalists include Bill Atkin, Alison Grojean, James Hall, Kathleen Leyrer, Charlie Martin, Dorothea Martin, Katy McDonough, Kelly Sandula-Gruner, Dave Sincox, and Dan Templin. The Grand Band instrumentalists include Bill Holda, Don Farnum, Jim Kasprzak, Pete Murthum, Rick Peterson, and John Ross with guest guitarist Kerri Nicholoff.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. They are available in Grand Ledge at the Opera House, Ace Hardware, and MacDowell’s Hearth & Floral.

Community Spotlight > News for Ken Clark's Coat Closet

It's that time of year again...the Grand Ledge Shopping Tour will be held on December 14! Ken Clark's Coat Closet supports this great organization.

On this special shopping night they provide gently clean and used items for our children in need. Please consider donating if you have items that need a new home. There is always a need for coats, boots, snow pants, hats, mittens, and gloves. It makes it easier for their group if these items are clean. Unfortunately, they do not have laundry facilities.

You can drop off items at Sawdon at 220 Lamson Street (9:00 AM and 4:00 PM Monday - Friday; stop by the Special Services office on the first floor to pick up a key and sign in) or the Grand Ledge High School Office on Kent Street (7:00 AM - 3:30 PM Monday - Friday). If a special pick up is needed, please let them know and they can make arrangements. They also accept monetary donations, so they can purchase additional items that are needed for the shopping night. Please consider supporting this special event. The children truly appreciate your support!
