Wilton Singers presents American Harmonies
Choral works by American composers make up American Harmonies, the next performance by the Wilton Singers scheduled for Friday and Saturday, May 13-14, at WEPCO on New Canaan Road.
This cabaret-style event features table seating, and audience members are welcome to bring beverages and food — anything from light snacks to a full picnic dinner — to enjoy before the show. The concert hall will be transformed by Laurie Davis, aka the Glitter Fairy, and sets are designed by artist Ed MacEwen.
The show’s lead producer is Suzanne Thawley Jeschke, a Wilton High School graduate, mother, and second-generation Wilton Singer.
The Singers is an auditioned group of 50 men and women. Many are Wilton High alumni, music educators in Fairfield County (including Middlebrook choral teachers Janet Lofink Nobles and Susan Kelley, Wilton High choral instructor Betsey DeGraffe, and former Wilton High choral instructor Patrick Taylor) and the parents of current students.
Proceeds contribute to annual scholarships for graduating Wilton High choral students. To date, the Wilton Singers has awarded more than $50,000 in scholarships.
Tickets are on sale at wiltonsingers.org.
