Enjoy an evening of music and melody when the Northeast State Music Department welcomes the Cantemus Women’s Choir to present “A Garden of Song,” May 5, 7:00 p.m. at the Wellmont Regional Center for Performing Arts at the Blountville campus next to Tri-Cities Regional Airport. The concert is free and open to the Public.
Cantemus Women’s Choir is a brand new community ensemble dedicated to exploring the beauty and versatility of music written and arranged for women’s voices. The choir is a multi-generational group of singers, ranging in age from 15 years through 80+ years. Although the choir is based in Kingsport, its membership hails from around the region with members coming from as far away as Morristown and Big Stone Gap to participate.
The choir rehearses Tuesday at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Colonial Heights and is under the direction of Patricia Denmark. Erin Raines serves as accompanist. In addition to the choir’s regular fall and spring concerts, this second season featured collaborations with AMEn (Appalachian Men’s Ensemble) at Christmas, and the East Tennessee State University men’s and women’s choirs this spring.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact 423.354.2474 or tcteague@NortheastState.edu.
