Description

The Concert Singers was organized to provide an opportunity for musically talented people to receive instruction in, and perform choral music under professional direction, as well as to stimulate interest and appreciation of music in the North Shore area.

A tradition has been established in which the programs have included a variety of musical styles from Bach, Mozart and Vivaldi, to American Musical Theater, to folk songs and spirituals. Two fall concerts and two spring concerts are performed every season. Additionally, there are occasional smaller concerts presented by select members or volunteers.

Since its inception, The Concert Singers has had the following Musical Directors: Rev. David F. Gallagher, Ms. Sonja Dahlgren Pryor and Mr. William C. Sano. Mrs. Carol A. Dixon is a past Associate Director.

Probably the one item that separates The Concert Singers more from other choral groups is that all our concerts are free; we are the only choral group on the North Shore that provides free concerts to the public. This has been accomplished through a combination of contributions and grants from a variety of sources, both public and private, as well as through dues and a semi-annual lobster roll sale. It is only with the cooperation and dedication of the membership that The Concert Singers have been able to maintain this unique feature of providing free concerts.
