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.
