Jamestown RI Community Chorus

Great Choral Singing Since 1949

Shakespeare, et al

Our May concerts, “Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” will feature text from the Bards’ plays and one of his sonnets. In addition, however, we’ll sing some music with allusions to Will. “Ah Robyn, Gentle Robyn” by William Cornysh is a 15th century part-song that is mentioned in “Twelfth Night” which was written a full century later. The more modern pieces include “Something’s Coming” from West Side Story, “This Can’t Be Love” by Rodgers and Hart and, of course, “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” from Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate. And for something completely different, the audience will forego the singalong and will be asked to declaim the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet.

Choral Arts New England

Many thanks to Choral Arts New England for the emergency grant the chorus received to help pay for our wonderful 2020 Virtual Holiday Concert. CANE awarded twenty such grants to help with choral groups all over New England. Nearly sixty groups applied for the grant which connotes the value of choral singing in the larger community. We deeply appreciate their support.
