Grammy-nominated Skylark, Greater Boston’s premier professional a cappella vocal ensemble, closes its season with a beautiful and diverse program for Memorial Day. With ‘Remembrance,’ Skylark offers a stunningly beautiful tribute to America’s fallen heroes, with music taken from times of conflict over our nation’s history.
Beginning with gritty revolutionary hymns of William Billings, and carrying through popular folk tunes and bluegrass music of the 20th and 21st centuries, Skylark’s signature programming is sure to appeal to a broad audience. The program includes many well-known hymns, including Amazing Grace and the Navy Hymn, with stunning solos and pristine ensemble work, along with more recent compositions familiar to Skylark audiences: Elder’s beautiful Elegy, Kirchener’s Angel Band, and others. Skylark’s closing set will include Take him Earth, for Cherishing written by British composer Herbert Howells to commemorate American President John. F Kennedy.
Comprised of some of the most distinguished classical vocal soloists from around the country, Skylark’s singers have joined together to create a tour de force a cappella ensemble that thrills audiences with its dynamic range, rhythmic prowess, and sheer beauty of sound. Don’t miss this special musical celebration!
For every ticket sold, Skylark will donate a portion of proceeds to a local veteran’s organization.
