The Beaufort County Concert Society has scheduled its spring concerts for two days next weekend, May 3 and May 4.

“We give two free concerts every year,” said Monica Ferrari, a member of the Beaufort County Concert Society.

The group performs at Christmas and during the spring.

The first concert will be performed at the Washington Civic Center on Friday. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. The group is scheduled to perform the following day at 3 p.m. at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Bath Ferrari said the Bath venue is often standing room only.

“It’s small, but the acoustics are wonderful,” she said.

Tickets are not required for either of the performances.

The performances will feature about 12 songs, ranging from “Blow Gabriel, Blow” to “Deep River.” All will be upbeat tunes meant to keep your feet tapping, according to Ferrari.

Ferrari especially loves the Beach Boys medley the group plans to perform.

“That’s a lot of fun. It gets everyone’s blood moving,” she said.

The medley includes “I Get Around,” “Catch a Wave” and “Fun, Fun, Fun.”

The choir has 38 members, but Ferrari said the ensemble could always use a few more voices, from first sopranos to bass singers. The group practices every Tuesday night at The Blind Center in Washington.

The Beaufort County Concert Society is a nonprofit organization and falls under the umbrella of the Beaufort County Arts Council.
