SOUTHBOROUGH – Assabet Valley Chambersingers will present “Turn the World Around,” a choral concert of short works and solos, including madrigals, folk songs from many cultures, vocal jazz and contemporary settings of great texts.

The concert will be held on March 12, at Harris Auditorium, Fay School, at 3:30 p.m.

The program will focus on the theme song “Turn the World Around,” which was made popular by Harry Belafonte and the Muppets. The song tells us to understand our relationship with the earth, with each other and with ourselves.

“Breaths,” written in the African American folk tradition and made popular by the group Sweet Honey in the Rock, also tells us to be aware of the world around us.

Other songs will include cultural folk songs, musical settings of great poetry, and lighthearted songs intended to entertain.

The Assabet Valley Chambersingers is an 18-voice ensemble from the Assabet Valley Mastersingers. Organized in 1983 by Artistic Director Robert Eaton as a civic outreach program in the greater Worcester and MetroWest areas, the Chambersingers provide entertainment for a variety of audiences. Members  have performed at venues such as the Arts in Common Westborough, Tower Hill Botanic Gardens, Northborough and Marlborough Libraries, and First Night Worcester, as well as assisted-living facilities throughout the area.

All tickets are “pay what you wish” at the door.
