The Park Slope Singers' January concert will feature “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass” which blends the traditional mass with contemporary texts and lively choral voices accompanied by a bluegrass band. The composer, Carol Barnett, has been praised for her musical audacity and cross-pollination. The Singers will also perform 12 a cappella American songs, from the traditional to the not-yet-published.
This concert will be dedicated to Kevin Thomas, a longtime member of the group who passed away suddenly in October. Kevin's enthusiasm for the choir and his friendship have been missed by all of us. We are honored to dedicate this to his memory and hope he enjoys it, as we know he was looking forward to singing this music and sharing it with all of you.
