On Saturday, Sept. 21st at 7 PM, ten local singers will again perform an hour of a cappella music in the North Church. Singers Barbara Fox, John Franklin, Jennifer Gillies, Allan Gore, Bill Johnson, Pam Koenig, Steve Koenig, Bill Mullins, Melissa Newcomb and Barbara Smith have been rehearsing every week throughout the past summer in preparation for this concert. The group has chosen to perform a variety of songs with beautiful, unusual, and often challenging harmonies. The works encompass a wide range of styles from classic choral pieces to more recent offerings by contemporary composers. As they break out into four different ensembles, the scope broadens with forays into barbershop, gospel, folk, protest, the slightly weird and whimsical, including a “tip of the hat” to Woodstock, and a lullaby. And if you haven’t yet attended a concert in the North Church, you’ll be amazed at its extraordinary acoustics.Find out more »
