Thanks for a great show!
The December 9th show at Memorial Spaulding auditorium, The Music of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, was a huge success (and a sold out hall), thanks to the incredible efforts of all the singers and of course our incomparable director, Chris Eastburn. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to see us!
Getting ready to folk out!
I'm excited about our concert on Sunday, December 9! More information about the concert is here, and tickets can now be bought online here.
While this program retains our folk roots with some classic songs like "Circle Game" and "So Far Away," this is also our most rocking setlist. We have a superb electric guitarist in the band now, and he's really filling out some of the funkiness and psychedelia of some of Carole King and Joni Mitchell's grooviest tunes. Our bassist is also riding a high, switching from country rock to funk to arpeggiated ostinatos to tender ballads. Two other firsts for the band: a wind player and a drummer!
The kids are psyched -- in fact, I think all of them have a solo of one sort or another (even if it's just one letter of the alphabet -- you'll have to see it to believe it).
The women have a crazy song in Woodstock and they've added a little visual flair to the intense harmonics already cooked into that number.
The men are have a backslapping good time with one of the peppier tunes: Big Yellow Taxi. I hadn't noticed how goofy some of those guys are, but they're letting it all hang out this time around.
