Songs of Our Politics

[MUSIC] Saturday, Sept. 22

You know what this election needs? More music. Not something borrowed from Bruce Springsteen or Stevie Wonder, but up-tempo originals like “Yankee Doodle” and Irving Berlin’s “I Like Ike.” The 22 singers of the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society will give these tunes and others the choral treatment on Saturday, in a program that will also include historical anecdotes and facts about former candidates. The show will prove that politics doesn’t have to be ugly. It only feels that way when you live in a swing state. 2 p.m.; Winchester Cultural Center, 3130 McLeod Drive, 455-7340,, $12 ($10 in advance)
