Genesee Valley Orchestra and Chorus at Eaglevale Country Club on March 8, 2015: “HERE COMES THE SUN”: GVOC’s Annual Dinner Concert

by GVOC ~ August 18th, 2014. Filed under: Event.

Cash bar 4:30,  Dinner 5:30,   Concert 7:00 PM

“Here Comes the Sun:” A Musical Tribute to Daylight Savings Time.   Although we lose an hour of sleep on the day of our dinner concert, the extra hour of sun gives us hope for the coming spring.  President Franklin Roosevelt instituted “war time” in the United States in order to save energy for the demands of World War II.  Come share with us the songs that gave comfort and hope during World War II, such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Sentimental Journey”, and “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To”, along with more recent tunes that celebrate the sun, such as the Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun”, and Elton John’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me”.
