A Cappella à la Carte: Supper & Songs


Date & Time: 
Jun 17 2017 - 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Friends of Music at Guilford (FOMAG) presents its 51st season finale, a three-part event that includes a brief membership meeting (open to the public) at 6:00, followed at about 6:30 by an All-Community Potluck Dinner and at 7:30 by an A Cappella Concert featuring the Guilford Chamber Singers and the women's quartet Singcrony. The 8-voice Guilford Chamber Singers are performing a dozen songs by regional composers, some of national and international renown, whose works have been featured in FOMAG programs over the years (including Don McLean, Peter and Sam Amidon, Anna Patton, Gwyneth Walker, Alice Parker, and Tom Baehr), and texts including biblical passages and hymns; poems by Ilona Bodmer, William Cowper, Franz Kafka, Alice Oswald, Henry David Thoreau, and T. Hunter Wilson; and a Bilbo Baggins walking song from the Middle Earth legendarium by J.R.R. Tolkien. The Brattleboro area women's quartet Singcrony—Ruth Allard, Beth Kiendl, Andrea Matthews, and Carrie Walker—then present Sounds of the Swing Jazz Era, old tunes with new arrangements by local musicians. A dessert reception caps the evening. The public is welcome to choose one, two, or all three items on the evening's menu; admission is free, with donations welcome. The church is handicap-accessible. Information: (802) 254-3600, e-mail office@fomag.org, or visit www.fomag.org.
