Our 2017 Schedule Takes Shape

The choir at East Chop Lighthouse, Oak Bluffs

The Spirituals Choir’s 2017 presentation schedule is growing! Here’s what it looks like now. As more dates are added, you’ll be able to find them on the “2017 Choir Schedule” tab at the top of this page.

The choir’s presentations feature songs sung by African slaves in the American colonies and the United States, along with the stories behind them. They include work songs, songs that recall Africa, songs that dream of freedom, and songs that helped slaves escape on the Underground Railroad. We sing at libraries, houses of worship, senior centers, and elsewhere, indoors or out. If you’re interested in arranging a presentation, leave a comment here or contact director Jim Thomas by email at Jim@US-SlaveSongs.org or by phone at 703-407-1207.

Our 2017 Season Is About to Begin!

Spring is here, director Jim Thomas has returned from Virginia, and our first rehearsal is set for Wednesday, April 26, at the usual time (6 to 7 p.m.) and in the usual place: the recreation room at Windenere.

Please encourage your singing friends to join us! All are welcome, but lower voices are especially needed to balance our sound.

Planning for our spring and summer 2017 performance schedule is now under way. If you have an idea for a venue where the Spirituals Choir hasn’t sung before, or hasn’t appeared in recent years, let me or Jim know.

Looking forward to seeing you on April 26!
