“Anything Goes” at Foothills Music Club
Published 12:21 pm Tuesday, November 14, 2023
The Foothills Music Club met on Thursday, November 9, at Tryon First Baptist Church.
“Anything Goes” was the title of the program which meant that members could perform any type of music and not be tied to a specific theme or period of time.
Appropriately, the program opened with a vocal rendition of the Cole Porter song “Anything Goes” from the 1934 musical of the same name. Included in the program were American folk songs and African-American spirituals as well as selections by composers such as Thomas “Fats” Waller, the jazz pianist virtuoso; ragtime pianist and composer, Scott Joplin; Joseph M. Martin, a native North Carolinian composer; and Peter Horton, a contemporary Austrian composer.
Pieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Gabriel Fauré were also presented. Members performed vocally and on piano, melodica, harmonica and classical guitar.
The Foothills Music Club meets monthly from September to May. For more information about the club and membership, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
