Marlborough – Leslie Havens, music chair of the Friends of the Marlborough Public Library, has announced that the first concert of the 2011-12 YACYSHYN Concert Series will be presented Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m. The holiday concert features the a cappella jazz vocal ensemble Syncopation with Aubrey Johnson, Christine Fawson, David Thorne Scott and Tsunenori “Lee” Abe.

All About Jazz calls Syncopation “a thoroughly modern, bright, and fresh take on ensemble jazz vocals that effectively updates the entire genre.” On Wonderful You, Syncopation's most recent CD, the group interprets pop songs from the past 40 years. R&B, soul, folk, fusion and electropop are transformed by jazz harmonies, rhythms and style.

The concert will take place in the Bigelow Auditorium of Marlborough Public Library, 35 West Main St. Admission to the concert is free and open to the public. For further information, please call 1-413-648-9663 or e-mail [email protected].
