Great Choral Singing Since 1949
The Jamestown Community Chorus is preparing a concert for May entitled “Over There- A Musical Remembrance of The War To End All Wars.” Many of the members have done some research into one of the most horrific conflicts if all time. The concert program will reflect music and poetry from 1918.
Matt McCoy of the RI World War One Centennial Commission stopped by and shared some great ideas > Check their Facebook page at:
The Chorus will donate materials about World War One to the Jamestown Library, including CDs of music, a songbook of ballads and songs from that era and five DVDs including BBC and PBS documentaries.
