Saturday, May 9 at 7:00 pm

The Burlington Community Choir (BCC) will serve up an invigorating set of pieces from all over the world. The program will feature music (and dancing!) from South Africa and other international choral traditions. Inspiration is also taken from closer to home with American shape-note tunes, bluegrass gospel and some tunes written right here in Vermont. The Queen City Larks, a smaller, auditioned group within the BCC will also be performing as part of this program. Come and join us for what is always a joyous helping of vibrant choral music.

Directed by Amity Baker, this 30-member choir has been making choral music accessible to singers of all backgrounds since 1999. It is a unique choir in the Burlington area because we welcome beginners as well as experienced singers. Singers register for it through the Community College of Vermont as a non-credit workshop. It is held in both the fall and spring semesters each year. Please call 802-865-4422 for information on how to register for fall 2009.

Amity Baker is the artistic director of Burlington-based choir Social Band and a member of Aurora Ancient Music, an early music trio. She also sings and plays banjo with the old-time duo Soaked Oats.
