Southborough – The Heritage Chorale, (John Finney, director) has received a $2,000 grant from the Southborough Community Fund (SCF), a fund of the Foundation for Metrowest. This grant is in support of the Chorale’s third and last concert of its “2015-2016 Family Series,” which began in November with a joint performance in Southborough by Heritage Chorale and the children’s chorus Voices Boston, followed by a February Pops Concert in Framingham.
The final concert of the season will be Saturday, May 14 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mark’s School Performing Arts Center, 25 Marlboro Road in Southborough. Joining the Chorale will be a high school aged honors choir, the Young Women’s Chorus of Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society, under the direction of Alyson Greer.
“Shakespeare & Friends,” will bring songs and dramatic readings of the Bard’s writings, in styles from madrigals to jazz, to three generations of residents in Southborough and the surrounding area. An excellent introduction to Shakespeare and to choral singing for students over age 7 who sing in school choruses or church choirs, this is a great event for families to enjoy together.
The SCF grant provides 50 free senior tickets and 50 free tickets for youths aged seven through high school, on a first-come, first-served basis. To inquire about free tickets, email [email protected] or call 508-270-3999. Free tickets for children aged 7 through 16 will require purchase of an adult chaperone ticket.
