SALT LAKE CITY — All they want is a good song and someone to sing it with.
The Salt Lake Choral Artists Women’s Choir, which includes several Davis County members, have plenty of good music on tap for their latest concert. “Swing It,” a night of dinner and dancing, will be held April 29 at the Univerity of Utah Union ballroom. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. and dancing begins at 7 p.m.
“We love swing music,” said Kaysville resident Dr. Jane Fjeldsted, the choir’s conductor. “We’ll have music by the Andrews Sisters, Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, and more. People will be able to be entertained by the music and dance to the band.”
Guest artists The Promontory Big Band and The Moonlight Singers will also be performing. Fjeldsted also conducts the Moonlight Singers, who perform regularly at Davis High’s Moonlight Serenade, and has only good things to say about the band.
“I’d call it the pre-eminient big band-style group,” she said. “Don Keipp, the mastermind behind the group, is a wonderful drummer.”
She also has only good things to say about the women’s choir. The group consists of about 50 singers, some of whom travel from as far away as Camus to participate.
“The best part of conducting is working with a group of women who are so happy to be singing, and to be singing together,” said Fjeldsted. “These ladies are just so much fun.”
The choir members feel the same way about her.
“She’s a cool lady,” said Kim Stoker, another member of the group.
“Swing It” will wrap up their current season, giving the singers a chance to unwind.
“It’s our year-end bash,” she said. “It’s a wonderful way to end the season.”
