Do you have a "bucket list"? I don't have one that's written down, but I do have a few ideas of things I'd like to eventually do or see. And the band U2 is DEFINITELY one of them.
Well, I'm not quite there yet, but I'm getting closer. And if this is something on your bucket list too, maybe you'd like to join me.
This Saturday (May 19th), the Vienna Choral Society is presenting a concert called "Seikilos to U2". The concert is being held to support arts education in Fairfax County & beyond and it will take place at 7:30 p.m. at UUCF (2970 Hunter Mill Road in Oakton).
Vienna Choral Society is partnering with several organizations including One Voice, which is David Reynolds' organization. (He is the way cool teacher at Vienna Elementary who leads the VES Jammers that VCS featured at the Celtic Arts Fest. You might also remember their Flash Mob at Viva Vienna last year).
There will also be a pre-concert talk given by Jennifer Rodgers Beach at 7 p.m. Families young & old are welcome. And seniors and children even get discounted tickets. (Details & tickets are available online or at the door.)
Here's what VCS had to say about the show:
"And yes, Seikilos to U2 is a huge span — 2,000+ years of western music history in 90-odd minutes. Why? Because we are the Vienna Choral Society, and we can!"
Now seriously folks, you can't beat that. You too can hear U2!
