Fri Nov 9 • The Bright Wings Chorus at the Old Firehouse, Tinmouth • 7:30 pm • $10 general/ $15 generous
Catch this fabulous group of singers, directed by Brendan Taaffe and featuring local hero Wheaton Squier, on their final, farewell tour. Over the span of four albums in seven years, The Bright Wings Chorus has brought to life the music of celebrated composer Brendan Taaffe. Rooted in the American shape note music, an early hymn tradition, the singers of Bright Wings are soulful, rhythmic and soaring. Their performances and recordings have set a standard for choirs throughout North America and the UK and many of their songs have become standard repertoire.
Of their first album, Here Below, one reviewer said, ““If you are moved by the sacred, if you need music that takes hold of your bones and won’t let go, you should own a copy of Here Below. It’s simply the most powerful stuff I’ve heard in a long time and I don’t know what to do with it except tell you over and over that you must have it.”
This will be the group’s final tour. Please join them to celebrate their years of making harmony together
The Bright Wings Chorus is Meg Chittenden, Kimberley Moore, Mia Bertelli, Addie Rose Holland, Wheaton Squier, Brendan Taaffe, Stephen Higa, Avery Book, and Casey Steinberg.
