Alice Parker, who recently celebrated her 90th birthday, is an internationally renowned composer, conductor and teacher who believes strongly in the importance of community choruses such as the Charleston Men’s Chorus. She is well-known for her long-time work as the principle arranger for the Robert Shaw Chorale and her creation of the non-profit Melodious Accord which offers a variety of music education opportunities based on the beliefs in melody, in the possibility of accord rather than discord, and the combination, what happens in the lives of people who sing together. It is a great honor to present Alice Parkers’ arrangement of “Tenting Tonight,” especially commissioned to celebrate CMC’s 25th anniversary.
