We won’t be able to sing all of the pieces at each concert–  though this is a short program (about an hour of music) we have been asked to shorten it even further for certain venues.  We’ll do our best along the way to sing as much as we can– it is all wonderful music, representative of our first ten years of a cappella programming, suited to our forces and to the acoustics in which we will perform. Just looking over the list ups my anticipation for this project!   We’ll sing this program at our Saturday, June 4 concert at Hyde Park Union Church– if you are in town, we hope you will come and hear it!
