“Keep a Song in Your Heart!”
We are showcasing our past concerts right here! Our link this week is You’ll Never Walk Alone / Climb Ev’ry Mountain arranged by Mark Hayes,
music by Richard Rogers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein. This performance is from our Spring 2018 concert series, Here’s to Song!, with Director Shawn Grenke and Accompanist Krista Rhodes.
You’ll Never Walk Alone is from the second act of the 1945 musical, Carousel. It is sung to comfort and encourage Julie Jordan. It is reprised in the final scene to bolster her unhappy daughter, Louise, during her high school graduation.
Similarly inspirational, Climb Ev’ry Mountain is from the 1959 musical, The Sound of Music. It is sung at the end of the first act by the Mother Abbess to encourage Maria to find her own purpose in life.
