Celebrating the Music of the Spirit
Singing that inspires and sets us free
Saturday, June 4
9:30 am – 4:00 pm
Chandler Center for the Arts
Kim and Reggie Harris – http://kimandreggie.com/ – and Peter and Mary Alice Amidon, will be leading singers in old and new songs, from gospel to traditional and from sacred to secular, including some of their own compositions and arrangements. Some songs will be taught by ear, some from written music, and some a little of both.
Feast of Singing 2011 will be a day long ongoing glorious mix of the Amidons and the Harrises leading us in song in turn and together on the stage of Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, Vermont.
Singing will begin at 9:30 and continue until we break for a delicious home made lunch served in the Parish Hall of St John’s Church, which is a short walk from Chandler.
Then back to Chandler for more of the same.
