They say, “The more things change, the more things stay the same,” and Social Band, Burlington’s lively band of singers, explores this very subject with its spring program “The World will ever Dance and Sing! Songs of Succession and Permanence.”
As we stand at a fulcrum of the year, poised for spring’s transformation,Social Band weaves together a program of poetry and song exploring how things (seasons, ages, cycles, lifetimes) shift from one stage to the next. And even though we all know that “change is good”, Social Band dwells some on those things that endure even as the scenery changes.
Sound a little heavy? Have no fear! While the members of Social Band take the power of music very seriously, they tend to take themselves a little less so, bringing a sense of exuberance and fun to their singing. The program includes jubilant compositions by Vermont composers and buoyant hymns welcoming the coming of spring as well as music that crosses the boundary between “choral” and “folk.”
Join us for some finely tuned words and music as we shake off March and take on April.
Admission is by suggested donation of $15.
Tickets are available from members of the chorus or at the door.
