Melanie Moore - Artistic Director


When: Saturday, May 13, 2023 2:.30 PM and 7:30 PM
Where: Eisemann Center for Performing Arts
Guest Artist: Scott Bardin

Spring brought big changes, and with it the latest production of The Contemporary Chorale: Perspectives.  

The pandemic years changed us all, and our repertoire was been chosen to reflect thoughts on all aspects of our everyday existence: change, life, death, love, friendship, and so much more. You’ll hear classics with a new twist such as “On a Clear Day’ and Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin'”, to new favorites like “Dos Oruguitas” from Encanto, and Alicia Keys’ “Good Job”, which salutes the frontline workers during Covid.

We look forward to singing for you again in the fall of 2023.

Scott Bardin – King of the World – happily returns to the Contemporary Chorale for his fourth show, having performed in 2015 in the “Sounds of Sondheim”, 2016 in the 60th Anniversary show, and in 2018 in “What’s in a Name”, with treasured memories of each show. He is a 30+ year veteran of the theater, both musical and non, having appeared with numerous companies throughout the DFW area, as well as performing as a soloist for the Dallas Summer Musicals for 10 years. He met his wife, Cathy, of 31 years while performing in a silly bluegrass musical (yes, silly). Thanks to Melanie for giving him the call this year. Promises were made to keep singing, and promises we will keep. For you, mom.
