The young women of Colla Voce have been practicing hard for their Liberty Theatre spring performance. The all-female choral group plans to rock the house this weekend with a range of selected songs including those by Stevie Wonder and Queen.
"All the girls are dedicated to high quality," said choir director Max Stimac. "They feel the music is their own."
The choir consists of 12 singers with a back-up, five-member rhythm section of two guitars, a bass guitar, two keyboards and a drummer. In addition, Colla Voce is assisted by the piano skills of Blaine County music teacher Dorinda Rendahl.
"The performance at the Liberty Theatre is very popular, and it's all been word of mouth," Stimac said. "We are at the Liberty for two nights and people should be excited about it. It's kind of a rock show."
The free performance at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey will take place Friday, May 15, and Saturday, May 16, at 7 p.m. and will include Wood River High School men's choral group the B-Tones and Enchanté, a younger girls' vocal group at Wood River High School.
The choir was founded by Max Stimac in 2002, and can be heard performing throughout the Wood River Valley year round. During the holiday seasons Colla Voce delights audiences with their a cappella singing outside a variety of local businesses and holiday gatherings. For details, call 578-5020, ext. 2249.
