Social Band celebrates the heady influences of summertime with a program of song featuring birds (and even a few bees!) Social Band sings to summer with a program of music and poetry at the delightful Old Round Church in Richmond Vermont. Come share an hour with us as we pay homage to warmer weather with songs old and new, including works by Vermont composers.
Saturday, August 23rd at 7:30pm, Old Round Church, Richmond, VT
Join Social Band, Burlington’s lively band of singers, for a program that celebrates everything feathered, buzzing and verdant in these delightful months of summer. This 20-member group, known for its thoughtful mixture of genres, will sing a program encompassing the ancient, modern, classical and “folksy”. This performance features the works of celebrated Vermont composers Tom Cleary, Sara Doncaster, Don Jamison and Colin McCaffrey, in addition to several pieces by 17th century madrigal masters.
Unfamiliar with Social Band? This Burlington-based chorus presents a cappella choral music to the public, encourages new compositions especially by local composers, and fosters the joyful and thought-provoking expression of music. Social Band organizes its programs around themes, weaving poetry and song to create an experience that feeds listeners’ hearts and heads. And, while we take the power of music very seriously, we tend to take ourselves a little less so, bringing a sense of exuberance and fun to our singing.
Join us for some delightful music in a delightful setting!
