Why We Sing Together–and How You Can Help

Here’s a clip from last weekend’s Ahoy, Stranger!, featuring us singing Zoltán Kodály’s “Norvég leányok.”

Moments like these capture our favorite parts of singing together: beautiful but little-heard choral music, sung by devoted and passionate local musicians.

Ahoy, Stranger! was our tenth concert since our founding in 2010. Help us prepare for ten more by becoming a subscriber today.

Ahoy, Stranger! Music of Travel and Adventure on June 2

Join us on Sunday, June 2 at 5 PM for the final concert of our 2012–2013 season.

To conclude this year of encounters with forces outside ourselves, we’ll feature music of travel and adventure, considering both our reasons for exploration and the experiences we bring home. The concert includes works by Robert Schumann (1810–1856), Zoltán Kodály (1882–1967), Robert Shaw (1916–1999) and Alice Parker (1925–), and Philadelphia’s own David Ludwig (1974–).

We’ll be celebrating the end of the season by dining around the corner at Erawan after the concert. Email chestnutstreetsingers@gmail.com to reserve your seat.

The performance will take place at the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia at 2125 Chestnut Street. Donations accepted.
