Summer Music at Grace Presents Village Harmony Teen Session – July 23, 2018
SHELDON, VT – On Monday, July 23, a dozen teen singers will regale listeners with international choral music as part of the Summer Music at Grace Village Harmony Sessions in Sheldon, VT. Led by Will and Lynn Rowan, Village Harmony features special guest Arturas Sinkevicius from Lithuania. The dozen teen singers include two girls from Lithuania as well as talented teens from Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. The eclectic concert program will include music from three continents and several centuries. Sinkevicius will present ancient ritualistic Sutartines chants and lively Lithuanian folk songs accompanied by bagpipes, drums, and zither. These will be contrasted with music and dance from English visiting customs. The concert program will also feature upbeat Bulgarian dance-songs, 17th century American ballads and shape-note-tunes, lilting Medieval folk songs, and original compositions by the Rowans.
Join us at Grace Church, 215 Pleasant St, Sheldon, VT, for potluck at 6:00 PM. (Please bring a dish to share.) And stay for the concert, which begins at 7:30 PM. Admission is on a sliding scale from $5-$15. Please call (802) 326-4603 or email email@example.com for additional details.
If you are able to provide bed and breakfast for the traveling musicians on the night of the 23rd, please contact Beth at (802) 326-4603. Thanks!
