Bowie Senior Chorale

  • Bowie Center for the Performing Arts 15200 Annapolis Road Bowie, MD, 20715 United States

You can almost hear the hoof beats of thoroughbred horses as they speed around Bowie’s historic race tracks and the whistles of the trains as they travel through Bowie on their way north and south with coal, tobacco and passengers. These are the sounds and scenes the Bowie Senior Chorale will evoke in this year’s spring concerts which are the finale in the year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the city of Bowie. Chorale Director Craig Sparks has created a program which recognizes the key elements in Bowie’s history and includes such favorites as Camptown Races and All the Pretty Horses. Get on board with Long Train Runnin’ and Travelin’ Train. The concert recognizes the building of the Levitt homes in the 1950s, as well as songs associated with famous performers who were born or raised in Bowie, such as Hey, There performed by Kathie Lee Gifford and the moving Fields of Gold made famous and memorable by one of Bowie’s musical stars, Eva Cassidy. The Chorale performs other favorites, such as the Beatle’s classic Penny Lane and the rousing spiritual, I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to be Free.
