Cole Porter was an American treasure who wrote the music and lyrics to many of the best-known songs of the 20th century.
With over 1200 songs for stage and screen which continue to hors-d’oeuvres and interpreted today, Cole Porter’s music is enduring, sophisticated and beloved. Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities is delighted to present An Evening of Cole Porter Favorites with John Hatcher & Friends Quartet on October 4th at 7 pm.
With so many songs to choose from, the program will feature two hours of Cole Porter’s best-known works and dance tunes including I Love Paris, Night and Day, From This Moment On amongst others. The quintet features piano, bass, drums and saxophone and vocalist Meghan Causey. A dance floor will be set up in front of the band, and light
The event, a fundraiser sponsored by John Hatcher for the Arts & Cultural Center, is exciting. Hatcher believes, “Cole Porter’s genius was writing music that both instrumentalists and vocalists love to perform and that carries over to audiences of any age. Weymouth Great Room is an intimate, acoustical gem for this music, and the musicians of the group enjoy playing in a place that is like no other. The dance floor is being added by popular request following the Gershwin evening earlier this year.”
Tickets are $50 for Weymouth members and $65 for nonmembers. For reservations, you may go online to TicketMeSandhills.com and click on Concerts, or call the office at (910) 692-6261.
