Social Band explores “Deep Midwinter” in song this Sunday

D-3-A-Social-Band-2-SCBurlington’s Social Band presents a concert combining ancient and modern-day songs and carols to honor this winter season, which is rich with the contrasts of light and dark, outer cold and inner heat. Join the performers for this contemplative and celebratory evening of song, titled “Deep Midwinter: Songs from Winter’s Heart,” on Sunday, Dec. 22, at 3 pm in the Charlotte Congregational Church.

Social Band tells the story of this beautiful time of year with unique carols, contemporary works by Vermont composers, songs from the American shape-note tradition, and audience sing-alongs. This group weaves together poetry and song to create a sometimes thoughtful, sometimes joyful, sometimes irreverent hour of choral music. Social Band is directed by Amity Baker.

Admission is by suggested donation of $15. Tickets are available at the door. For more information, visit www.socialband.org or call 355-4216.
