$10 – $15

TIcket are $15/adults $10/12 and under at 317main.org. 

 

It’s Bluesy. It’s Traditional.  It’s Meditative. It’s Rowdy. It’s Celebratory.  It’s Reverent. It’s Songs Of The Season.   

317 Main Community Music Center is pleased to present the fifth annual Songs Of The Season holiday concert,  featuring the talented vocal instructors at the Yarmouth-based music center, on Friday, December 13th, 7 PM at First Parish Congregational Church in Yarmouth. 

The teaching artists at 317 Main,  all have active performance schedules in addition to their teaching responsibilities. “Bringing together this exceptional group of singer/songwriters/instrumentalists to collaborate on a wonderful evening of seasonal music has become a delightful tradition and a can’t-miss evening in our community, ” said Chris Moore, Director of Music Education.

The ensemble, known as The Main Street Revelers, is comprised of Jeff Christmas, Sorcha Cribben-Merrill, Diana Hansen, Mesa Schubeck, and Kathy Slack.  Songs of the Season will kick off with several short performances by student groups.

The repertoire draws from various holiday traditions (secular and non-secular) and crosses multiple genres. There will be old-time mandolin and barbershop quartet style vocals. The versatile ensemble will swing from jazz to folk and back again. Because each artist comes from a different musical background, they can cover a lot of musical territory – offering more range than a typical holiday concert. 

Knowing that the holiday songbook is beloved by many, there will be several opportunities for the audience to sing along and we invite everyone to join us on the steps of the church at 6:30 PM for cocoa and caroling. 

 

TIcket are $15/adults $10/12 and under at 317main.org.
