Conductor, Gentlemen Songsters

The Gentlemen Songsters, the men’s chorus consisting of Riderwood residents, will present their Spring Concerts on Saturday, May 11 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. in the Riderwood Chapel.

Both concerts will feature familiar music of the Gershwin Brothers, George and Ira. Two quartets, four members of the Songsters, plus Riderwood’s Vocal Jazz Quartet, will also sing.

There is no admission charge; however, donations which exceed concert expenses will go to the Riderwood Benevolent Care Fund.

Conductor, Ray Roth, and accompanist, Cidney Roth, will retire from their positions following these concerts. The group is currently looking for a new conductor and accompanist.
