Sing gospel with Mystic Chorale this winter!
January 7 from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Experience the power of singing gospel music with more than 250 others as part of the Arlington-based Mystic Chorale, led by award-winning director and composer, Jonathan Singleton. Mystic Chorale is a non-audition, non-profit, volunteer-run community chorus. The ability to read music, while helpful, is not required. Its motto is, “We welcome all who love to sing!”
This season the chorus will sing a diverse mix of spirituals, traditional and contemporary gospel, all united by themes of love and hope. The concert program will feature gospel classics like Dottie Peoples’ He’s an On-Time God; Rain on Us by John P. Kee; Marvelous; as well as Mystic Gospel favorites Holy Ground and Swing Low Sweet Chariot!
Mystic will be joined by fabulous guest artist Athene Wilson, an award-winning jazz, gospel and R&B vocalist whose singing career began at the tender age of seven in a small Pentecostal church in Jamaica. Athene has toured nationally and internationally to great acclaim and has accompanied Patti LaBelle, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson and James Taylor as a background singer.
8 weeks of rehearsals begin on Tuesday, January 7, 2019 7:30-9:30pm at First Parish Unitarian, 630 Mass Ave., Arlington Center. Concert weekend is Saturday, February 29th and Sunday, March 31 at Converse Hall at Tremont Temple in Boston.
