Sea Songs to a Cold Winter Night

February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Pembroke Library, 221 Old County Road
Pembroke, ME 04666 United States
+ Google Map

A community sing-along to benefit “Labor of Love” food pantry.
February is a time when the monthly “Chantey Sing” has several themes to choose from, so we’re putting in traditional ballads of sailors and their sweethearts for St. Valentine’s Day, chanteys of African-American sailors for Black History Month, and songs of life-saving at sea to honor those who dedicate their lives to saving the lives of others. Led by “From Away Downeast,” with banjo, fiddle, concertina and guitar, many of the songs have rousing easily learned choruses for all to join in singing songs that will give us a warm feeling - - - and Spring will be only a month away. Admission is by boxed food, canned food, or monetary donation to “Labor of Love,” a community not-for-profit all-volunteer organization that brings food and warmth to families in our communities.

Rehearsals will resume for Quoddy Voices' spring concerts at 7 pm, Monday, February 25, at Eastport Arts Center. This season's program is titled Around the World in 80 Minutes and will include choral works from all seven continents, even Antarctica (or written on the way there in 1843!). The chorus will prepare an exciting mix of pieces reflecting the diversity of cultures within the human family. The program, full of rhythm and joy, draws upon traditional folk idioms, including a Russian men's chorus; a Zulu wedding song; an Australian work, Hope There Is, with text by an Aboriginal poet; and an arrangement of a melody of the Ojibwe First Nation tribe in Canada. One highlight will be a work composed for Quoddy Voices by the Chinese composer Yujing Bai.
