Colla Voce, the Wood River High School women's jazz and special performance group, is taking the stage at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey for their annual "Nights at the Liberty" concerts, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 20-22.

"A hard-rocking rhythm section" will accompany the group of twelve young women. Colla Voce will perform jazz, rhythm and blues, and rock 'n' roll. The concerts will include a special guest appearance by the B-Tones men's vocal group and Enchanté, the high school's other women's vocal ensemble. For more information, call Max Stimac at 578-5020, ext. 2249.

The Colla Voce performances come in advance of the high school's final choral concert on Tuesday, May 25, at 7 p.m., at the old high school auditorium on the Community Campus in Hailey.

The performance at the Community Campus is free, although donations are accepted. The concert is titled "Make Our Garden Grow," the title of a piece by Leonard Bernstein to be sung by the High School Concert Choir. The concert will feature songs for the growing season, including the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun."

The seventh- and eighth-grade Concert Choir will sing "A Girl's Garden," by Randall Thompson with words by Robert Frost, and the High School Concert Choir will also sing "All in the Golden Afternoon," the song sung by the flowers in Walt Disney's "Alice in Wonderland."

Also featured in the concert will be the B-Tones, the men's group led by R.L. Rowsey; Enchanté, the women's high-school chamber choir directed by Rowsey; and Colla Voce.

For further information, please call the choir office, 578-5020, extension 2249.
