’40s Revue Reprises Music Of WWII Era

Published October 26, 2006

The Henry Singers will present an encore performance of their nostalgic “1940s Sentimental Journey Revue” on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, at St. James the Apostle Church.

The all-volunteer chorus, directed by Diane Scarbrough, has been flooded with requests to repeat last spring’s program that included the songs that bolstered up so many of today’s grandparents during the uncertainty and turbulence of World War II and a slide presentation reminiscent of those “often stormy ’40s.”

The Henry Singers enjoy bringing their love of quality intergenerational music to the community. Dressed in costumes representative of the 1940s, they’ll present their renditions of the era’s best love songs, Broadway melodies and patriotic tunes. This free performance is sure to bring smiles and some tears and will certainly send concertgoers away with unforgettable songs in their hearts. The program will also honor veterans of all wars.

“Sentimental Journey: A World War II Musical Revue” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. at the church, 1000 Decatur Road (Route 155), McDonough. For information contact (770) 320-8307.
