Carly Simon's Holiday Party

We were recently invited to sing at Carly Simon's holiday party at her home in West Tisbury. It was such a memorable event for all of us! We sang Velvet Shoes, Christmas is Coming, and Wintersong and then Carly asked us to sing another, so we added Petit Enfant. We all gathered around the piano and the Christmas tree to sing Silent Night with Carly and her guests and then went outside to see a few Island dance groups perform on her deck. Carly generously presented each of our singers with a gift, though the best gift of all was sharing in this experience--a memory that will last a lifetime.  

Youth Meets Experience for Island Community Chorus Holiday Concert

Thanks to Louisa Hufstader for a wonderful article in the the Vineyard Gazette about our upcoming concerts this weekend! Click here to access the full article. 

"This weekend’s Christmas concerts by the Island Community Chorus, directed by Peter Boak, will be unlike any in the group’s 20-year history. On Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown, the 125-member choir will be joined by more than two dozen much younger voices as the Martha’s Vineyard Children’s Chorus makes its holiday debut...
This weekend’s concerts, Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 4 at 3 p.m., will feature the children’s chorus in half of the 12 numbers on the holiday program. The children will sing three songs on their own and three with the Island Community Chorus: I Saw Three Ships, Petit Enfant and a stirring, modern version of Away in a Manger, arranged by the young Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo." -Louisa Hufstader
