GARDNER — The Greater Gardner Community Choir will present their annual spring concert on Sunday, May 5 at 2 p.m. in the Bethany Baptist Church, 72 Ryan St. (just off Route 66). The concert is titled “For A Breath of Ecstasy” and will include several choral works by Michael John Trotta. The text is from “Love Song,” an anthology of text by celebrated Pulitzer poet, Sara Teasdale (1884-1933). The chorus of 70 voices will be accompanied by an orchestra of strings and solo oboe.

Diane Cushing will direct the mixed chorus, with special keyboard accompaniment by her husband, Theodore Cushing.

In celebration of the choir’s 10th anniversary as an independent arts organization, the second half of the program will consist of favorite pieces from the last 10 years. Also performing will be the Greater Gardner Youth Chorus, directed by Shannon Leighton.

Tickets will be available at the door. Due to a grant from the St. Gobain Foundation, admission for seniors and children may be bypassed for this concert. For more information visit ggcchoir.org.
