Windmill Music’s 2017-2018 season continues May 4 and 5 with The Age of Rock and Roll at the Great Hall of The United Congregation in Mississauga. The show features rock music of the ages, much of it under the heading of classic rock, by the Windmill Singers and Band. All are semi-pro trained.
Windmill, which is a non-profit organization with a mandate to give a stage for young singers to perform, has been doing seasonal shows since 2006, identifying a theme and putting it into music.
“We have done rock concerts before from the ‘60s and the ‘70s and ‘80s, and this time we decided on any song as long as its rock and roll,” said Brian Pritchard, Windmill Music Theatre artistic director .
The concerts, which will include 25 songs and some encore numbers, will be performed by 14 vocalists and a five-person band. Seven of the songs will be ensemble arrangements, five will be duets and 14 will be solos. The show has been put together with five rehearsals in only two weeks.
“What we ask is that anyone who wants to be (part of the group) has to be good sight readers,” Pritchard said.
Tickets are $35 apiece and available by ordering off of the website windmillmusic.org or by calling 905-483-5702. Both shows start at 8 p.m.
The Unitarian Congregation is on 84 South Service Road.
